If you were a bishop and one of your priests came to you and admitted to molesting a child or children, or a teenager or teenagers, what would you do?
Now, I know some bishops claim, absurdly, that years ago they didn't know about sex crimes what they know now. So let's just say this admitting-to-molesting scenario happened, say, 30 years ago.
Wouldn't the normal reaction to hearing that from one of your priests be shock, followed by indignation and grief, followed by you lifting his facilities and telling him his priestly career is over, and followed by you telling him that because of his crimes against children you and he must go to the police?
I've never understood how a bishop could think that a man who has committed sex crimes against children or youth could be fit to stay in the priesthood.
Wouldn't you automatically -- automatically! -- think, "We made a big mistake in admitting this man to ordination and, before that, keeping him in the seminary. Either he never had a true vocation to the priesthood or he fell away from his vocation. In either case, he is not able or fit to continue."
The rest of your reaction, of course, would be to see to pastoral care of the victims and their families, and to see to spiritual care for the priest.
Isn't all this what you would do...automatically and right away?
