Archdiocesan officials in Milwaukee and leaders of a Milwaukee-based religious congregation try to explain away culpability for allowing a priest to remain in active ministry at two parishes and a school despite knowledge of prior sexual abuse of children. Only when another allegation was reported to police did the archdiocese and congregation remove the priest from his assignments. All of this transpired over the past year. What does this malfeasance say about how hierarchical leaders continue to place the interests of their institutions over the protection of children?
