Dan Rather Reports and Fr. Lopez-Lopez

Sorry I haven’t been blogging much lately.  The story of Fr. Fernando Lopez-Lopez (the priest who was convicted of child sex abuse BEFORE coming to Los Angeles in 2001) has been eating up my writing time.

We found out that the Archdiocese of Los Angeles does not and has no intention of ever doing background checks on priests.  They also waited six months before removing Lopez-Lopez after learning of allegations in 2004.  That was when the worst abuse of his victims occurred.

Steve Lopez at the Los Angeles Times wrote an excellent column.

SNAP’s event at the Cathedral got tons of coverage.  It was really exciting.  You can see a sample here.
