Should the Catholic Church initiate a zero-tolerance policy for church officials accused of sex offenses?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 15, 2002
“Yes. … If they are not willing to condemn their clergy for doing something like that, they are setting a bad example for the rest of the world.”
“My first instinct is to say yes, but then you don’t want to accuse someone who is innocent of being guilty. I don’t know.”
“Yeah. You don’t let someone violate someone like that. It should not be tolerated.”
“First of all, they need to find out if it’s true or not.”
