Pope Francis likes to talk about how those were the bad old days, and the church does not do that anymore, whenever the subject comes up of child molestation by priests. HRCC has used this method of denial successfully for much longer than I've been around. It works well.
But would FtTP risk blowing up the cover story by re-instating a priest known to do harm sexually? One with a prior conviction involving a child?
Yet, from India, we learn that a predatory priest, Joseph Jeyapaul, with a conviction for sexual abuse or a minor, and after consultation with the Vatican, has been reinstated as a priest in the Diocese of Ootacamund, India, under Bishop Amalraj.
