One assumes this means they are under no obligation to refrain from saying what they know. (Bishops prohibit priests from revealing information that exonerates them).
Their statement paints a picture of unstable behavior of the accused after being fired (including assaulting other employees,) and threats of retaliation.
I'd love to see the Dallas Charter changed too. Pedophiles got away with raping children because the Bishops can have nobody who will hold them accountable and there are some personalities that will take advantage of the situation. They breed the cult mentality in the people underneath them and they are off to the races.
There are too many nutcases out there and people with grudge against the teachings of the Church to remove our priests, take away their faculties to perform Sacraments, leave them hanging for a decade without a dime to hire an attorney and then refuse to reinstate those found innocent to appease Catholic Church vigilantes.
Police do investigations before they come and remove a criminal. People making accusations against priests need to be held to the standard of 'credible' before our priests are removed.
"Credible", means when you ask them questions they can supply you with compelling facts and witnesses who at least saw something fishy, inappropriate or too much together time, googly eyes. Credible people who can substantiate times and places.
An end should come to silencing the accused who often have evidence that exonerates them as the 'case' drags on for ten years or who are never returned to appease vigilantes.
Terrorists in Guantanamo Bay have more rights than Catholic priests.
