The decades of lies and cover-ups that Cardinal Mahoney participated in are finally ending.
One important fact has been overlooked. Roger Mahoney was a licensed social worker and was legally bound to report sexual abuse.
To avoid having to do that, he surrendered his license in 1980. He knew he would be covering-up sexual abuse and tried to escape the legal consequences.
His sole punishment so far: he can’t do confirmations. And he is still an elector of the pope.
