Now that the bishops are realizing that the feds are coming after them on the abuse scandal, each diocese has begun to release the names of priests credibly accused of abuse. Some are going back to the 1920's or before.
Each time there is a release, there is news coverage either locally or nationally.
Texas, a nation of a state, released their names at once, each diocese doing so. This is a big state and big news.
Now, I am not a bishop or the pope, but what good is the USCCB and synodality if they could not have gotten together and decided on a common date to release all names nationally so that there would be one big bombshell of a news story and then that would have covered it.
But no, each bishop or Metropolitan decides on a drip, drip, drip approach with drip, drip, drip news coverage creating even more angst and alienation among faithful clergy and laity.
Is this how to run a Church?
