Religious people are the best people

The former chaplain of the Miami Dolphins is accused of molesting a teenage boy over a five-year period in the 1970s.

[Rev. Donald] Walk worked as a priest at St. James Catholic Church during the same years as the Rev. Anthony Mercieca, who is now implicated in the sexual abuse of former Rep. Mark Foley when Foley was a teenage altar boy.

He was removed from the church shortly after Carvin's mother reported the abuse to church elders. The Archdiocese of Miami transferred him to a church in Southwest Florida, where he continued working for years.

I guess the Church's longstanding policy of transferring accused priests to new, unsuspecting neighborhoods made sense, given the likelihood that the priest in question could outrun the devil, and everything would be fine.
