Beating the Dead Horse

Now, 10 or so years after the fact, they manage to find 1,000 unhappy people:

More than 1,000 Catholics from all corners of the country have signed a petition protesting Lincoln Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz's actions against members of the Lincoln-based Call to Action Nebraska.

The petition also included criticism of his refusal to participate in the annual nationwide audit to determine whether churches are compliant with church policies regarding sex abuse. It will be delivered to the Lincoln Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church on Friday.

"We are not happy with the way Bishop Bruskewitz has been handling things in the diocese and wanted to draw attention to that," said Rachel Pokora, president of Call to Action Nebraska.

Aaawwwwww, geeee....Looks like somebody wants their daughter married "in the Church."

In an attempt to gain credibility, the group of twits bring up The Audit!!--which Bp. B. has not used since 2003:

Though the Lincoln Diocese participated in the organization's first audit in 2003, it has not participated since and was the only diocese in the country to decline participation in the most recent audit.

"We find this to be very disappointing because we feel the children of Lincoln and the diocese are at risk," said Nicole Sotelo, spokeswoman for the Chicago-based Call to Action U.S.A.

CTA/USA did not provide a listing of abuse incidents in Lincoln. That's because there have been none.
