Catholic Archdiocese Updates Priest Behavior Rules

with one comment

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati has increased contact restrictions for priests on acceptable contact with children. Ohioan priests are no longer allowed to kiss, tickle, wrestle, bear hugs, lapsitting, or piggyback rides. Proper behavior can include shaking children’s hands, patting on the back, and high fiving.

Great move, Archbishop Daniel Pilarczyk. Behavior rules are updated every five years and was needed to reassure the parishes in Ohio of no further sex crimes. The Archdiocese of Cincinnati was held responsible and fined $10,000 for not reporting the 1970’s and 1980’s paedophilia scandals.

  1. How many bishops that participated in the shell game of moving molesting priests from parish to parish are still on the diocesan payroll? How many of the perp priests still receive a paycheck from the diocese? How many or them still have their health benefits paid for by the diocese? When the answer to these 3 questions is “NONE” then a real update will have been accomplishedl.
