San Diego Clergy Sexual Abuse Lawyer
Through teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, many baptized children and young adults reaching their age of reason validate the power of their faith through confirmation. These young parishioners accept the teachings from the Vatican, Pope Francis, and religious leaders. The faithful seek enlightenment and reflection at their local Church to deepen their commitment to repent and confess. Sadly, many priests, bishops, cardinals, deacons, and other clergymen abuse their moral obligation to protect, and instead, harm young people through sexual abuse.
In recent years, the United States Catholic Bishops have sought guidance from the Vatican to handle sexual misconduct in every Catholic Diocese, including the Catholic Diocese of San Diego. Recent reports indicate that approximately 79% of Americans recognize that clergy abuse remains an ongoing problem that reflects how the Church handles Parish priests with credible allegations of sexually abusing minors in the years passed.
Over the last two decades, cases involving victims of priestly sex abuse have dominated national headlines. For years, Church officials failed to release the names of priests with allegations of sexual abuse of children. Hiding the Catholic priest’s sexual misconduct from law enforcement and the public has placed a bad light on the religious organization. The internal life of the California Church was rocked when child abuse survivors came forward, took legal action, and filed civil lawsuit documents to hold the Church accountable.
