+  Priestly Misconduct - a Private or Public Matter?

  • Description: A priest in South Carolina has been suspended for sharing explicit images with a minor on the hookup app Grindr. He won’t be charged because the minor falsified his age and said he was 18 and the diocese is treating the situation as a private matter. The problem is, it’s not a private matter. Sexual sins by the clergy wound the whole body of Christ. We’ll talk more with Christopher Tollefsen.
