Hidden Names: Fallout From Maryland Abuse Report

Names remain redacted after appeal of court decision.

September 28, 2023  0

Recently, the Maryland Attorney General's Office released an updated version of a report on child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. The new version of the report has fewer redactions, but several names remain hidden — including the names of five officials accused of covering up abuse. What's strange is that the names of those five officials — four monsignors and an auxiliary bishop — have already been exposed by local media. In this episode of The Download, hosts Bradley Eli, Trey Brock and Alex Karzon take a look at the Maryland abuse report. They also discuss why bishops should deny Holy Communion to Joe Biden, as well as what members of the laity can do about the lack of reverence for Our Eucharistic Lord.
