Nowadays, its good advice to hire a lawyer...anytime you are in such a situation. If the charges are false, the woman stands to gain lots of money from the church just to “settle”, like the docs often “settle outside of court”.
The church can’t hire one for him..he is on his own.
“The church cant hire one for him..he is on his own.”
Which makes the reasonable person empathetic for the priests that are falsely accused and have little financial means to defend themselves.
They are at the mercy of a Church that is full of corupt CYA Bishops who are quick to coddle the wrong priests and cutoff the right priests. Of course most are too busy finding a way to support ObamaCare and bury Pro Death zealots like Kennedy.
Catholics are quick to join the chorus of the corrupt in the Church.
