If you’ve wondered what you can do with information you have that hasn’t moved the Diocese to action there is now another place to take your information. The Organization Roman Catholic Faithful, https://rcf.org/ has investigated and uncovered abuse all over the nation: https://rcf.org/press/index.htm
In the Diocese of Jefferson City would stealing $29,000 get someone removed from the clergy? Not if his name is Deacon Tony Valdes. Would having male pornography? IF a priest of the Diocese of Jefferson City had a lot of pornography at any point and IF the Bishop knew about it what would he do? Would he put the priest in parishes with schools with young teenage boys? On the surface it seems like a tough choice to contact a lay organization to report abuse in the Church but people have usually reported to the Hierarchy and gotten nowhere when they finally choose to go somewhere else. You should report things to Bishop McKnight as he asked, but at some point we all have a duty to protect the young people of the Diocese. That was the purpose of this blog.
