The archdiocese is committed to take every effort to safeguard children.

What a fucking liar.
You mean Archbishop Myers, who allowed this child abuser to actively minister, was taking every effort to safeguard children? You mean Monsignor John Doran, who agreed to not allow Rev. Fugee to minister to minors, was taking every effort to safeguard children? You mean the Newark Review Board, who had at their disposal Rev. Fugee’s confession, courtroom proceedings, and victim testimony yet still allowed him to be an active minister, were taking every effort to safeguard children? You mean you, Jim Goodness, who defended Rev. Fugee’s actions and said he did nothing wrong, were just taking every effort to safeguard children?
This is offensive to Catholics everywhere. More and more the laity are gaining education on how the hierarchy works, and blatantly lying and pretending you’re innocent isn’t calming the masses anymore. We know better. We’re smarter than this.
O God, come to our assistance. O Lord, make haste to help us.
