The bishop is dead wrong. The church hierarchy admits that at least 4% of priests are accused of child sex crimes. When prosecutors get to subpoena records, that figure usually jumps to 9% - 10%.
Let's hope everyone who saw, suspected or suffered this priest's crimes will come forward, get help, call police, protect others and start healing.
