Despite deposition, whole abuse story won't be known

A Delphic-headlined press release from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
Despite Archbishop Rembert G. Weakland's videotaped deposition that he knowingly assigned priests with a history of sexually abusing children to parishes during his time as archbishop from late 1977 until mid-2002, the Archdiocese of Milwaukee maintains that the complete picture of what occurred, in some cases more than 40 years ago, will never be known.

See Weakland moved priests, testimony shows. We are apparently meant to assume that evidence lost due to the passage of time would be much more favorable than that which is still available. See 'Mistakes were made'.

Odd that Jerry did not mention Bp. Sklba, no?

Anyone associated with the archdiocese will never be honest about any of this. You know the old line, "how do you know he is lying?" "His lips are moving!" I know people who have suffered abuse and their dealing with the archdiocese has just been a second form of trauma.
