Archbishop Chaput’s Op-Ed: Advocacy and Accuracy

 

Recently, I shared correspondence from the Archdiocesan Director of Communications regarding imbalanced news coverage in The Philadelphia Inquirer relative to the sexual abuse of children and the many positive steps taken by the Church over the past 15 years to ensure that the young people entrusted to her care experience the safest environment possible.

 

Today, I am sharing an Op-Ed written by Archbishop Chaput that addresses this same topic. It is being published this afternoon on Philly.com, the official website of The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Philadelphia Daily News, as well as CatholicPhilly.com, the official digital news agency of the Archdiocese. It is expected that the full text will appear in print in this Sunday’s edition of The Philadelphia Inquirer.
