The Rule of Cardinal Law

We're looking at the career of Cardinal Bernard Law. Last week, he stepped down from his post in Rome nearly a decade after the clergy sex abuse scandals forced him to resign as Archbishop of Boston. When the crisis erupted in 2002, church records revealed that Law was sweeping the scandals under the proverbial carpet. Rather than reporting priests to the police, he hid their bad behavior by moving them from one parish to the next. Law, himself, was named in hundreds of lawsuits for failing to protect children from child molesters. We’ll look at Law’s legacy, from the scandals that have shaken people’s faith to the current rate of sex abuse in the church.

Guests:
  • Michele Dillon: professor of sociology and department chair at the University of New Hampshire
  • Walter Robinson: distinguished professor of journalism at Northeastern University , who oversaw the Boston Globe Spotlight Team’s coverage of the Sex Abuse Scandal
  • Dr. Carlos Cuevas: pychologist and assistant professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Northeastern University
  • Jon Rogers: spokesperson for St. Frances X. Cabrini in Scituate where they’ve keeping a 24/7 vigil for 7 years.
