Time's Up: Catholics Demand Truth

Times Up: Catholics Demand Truth

Catholics are horrified at the recent revelations of clergy sex abuse and cover up. 

And they are demanding truth.

As we come up to the November 11 - 14, 2018 USCCB meeting, we are asking you to post the 5 Theses on your local church door.  Raise your voice and make sure our bishops come up to new standards of accountability for their role in covering up clergy sex abuse while taking full responsibility for healing the suffering they have enacted on victims.

Background

On August 14, a Grand Jury in Pennsylvania released a report detailing the abuse suffered by over 1,000 child victims, and names over 300 Catholic priests as credibly accused. In addition to the individual crimes, the report shed light on the decades long effort of Catholic Church officials to shield the perpetrators from prosecution, and generally hide details of the crimes from the public.

Catholics call on Pope Francis and the U.S. Bishops to order a full, immediate, and impartial investigation of any and all allegations of cover up.  We demand that Pope Francis and the U.S. Bishops to engage in a robust, independent, and transparent examination of the facts with laity in leadership as a step toward re-establishing trust with Catholics in the U.S. and elsewhere.
