Assertion by Foley Angers Victims of Abuse by Clergymen

Laurie Goodstein reported in The New York Times.
If Mr. Foley was abused, they said, he has a responsibility to report his abuser to the police immediately and to identify the cleric publicly.

"You certainly don't wait," said Peter Isely, a clinical social worker in Minneapolis who was abused by a priest as a teenager and is an official of a national advocacy group for victims. "It’s extremely important that the secrecy be pierced immediately, because there could be kids at risk."

Sounds a bit at variance with arguing for extending statutes of limitations.
