Seen on the web: Abuse cover up claimed to be going on in Diocese of Joliet?

Reader comment re: Crisis Magazine article on KC Bishop Finn
A victim of recent Diocesan abuse 10/29/2011 11:38 am

The Diocese of Joliet in Illinois is also covering up an abuser is continues to be employed on staff in spite of numerous written and verbal complaints.  No secular organization would allow this person’s behavior to continue more than 5 minutes, yet he has been allowed to continue for over 5 years.

Any staff person attempting to address his sexual, physical, and verbal abuses has been threatened into silence.  Bishop Conlon is at least consistent in his response to this issue, in that he has a long history of coverups in his previous diocese of Stuebenville.

Editor’s note: Does anyone know more about these allegations? If true, this is very serious. If false, calumnious. Either way, it needs to be properly addressed … and quickly! Please let me know.

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) not pleased with Bishop Conlon.

“We believe that Bishop Conlon still treats victims with extreme disrespect, still quietly moves priests who have complaints against them to new assignments in unsuspecting communities, and does very little to protect kids,” SNAP Director David Clohessy said in a statement. “It’s a blow to wounded victims, vulnerable kids and caring Catholics to see this promotion.”
