Cardinal Law Should Be in Jail

Thursday, 09 May 2002 12:00 AM

In October of 1984, one month after Law freely admits that he knew about Geoghan's evil, sick, twisted acts of depravity, he signed off on moving Geoghan to another church where he would rape and molest more young boys.

The way Law passes the buck and refuses to take any responsibility for this outrage is downright laughable. He claims to have relied on a letter from a doctor saying that the monstrous Geoghan would no longer be a threat to children. The "doctor" was an M.D. in general practice who had been a family friend of Geoghan's for 40 years!

The depth of Cardinal Law's arrogance is overwhelming. He is a pathetic figurehead of the Catholic Church who has lost all credibility over this sordid scandal. His moral authority has completely evaporated and he has been rendered useless as a so-called leader of Boston's Catholics.

Cries for his resignation have resonated throughout the country. But I can't believe that a more obvious and appropriate cry for justice isn't being heard: Bernard Law should be brought up on criminal charges and eventually incarcerated.

Picture this scenario: An ambitious insurance executive named John Doe forms a national insurance company with offices all over the country. His business grows and grows.

One day, one of his employees comes to Mr. Doe with shocking news: The office manager of the Peoria office is raping women when he pays them a visit to try and sell them insurance. So far, he hasn't been caught, but everyone in the company knows that he is raping these women.

If John Doe, the CEO of this fictional insurance company, were to simply transfer the serial rapist from Peoria to Cincinnati, do you think he's broken any laws? If the manager of a company has knowledge that one of his employees is raping and violating innocent victims and his response is to simply move the creep from one city to another in order to cover it all up, don't you think the boss should be held accountable, too?

Bernard Cardinal Law was John Geoghan's boss. His testimony this week proves that he knowingly reassigned a predator of young boys to another community. Law should be sharing a jail cell with Geoghan,a where the two of them could spend the rest of their lives contemplating the indescribable damage they've inflicted on so many people.
