Letters to the Editor (Long Island Edition)

After a seven-month-long investigation of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, Nassau County District Attorney Denis Dillon has found that no allegations of sexual misconduct have occurred under Bishop William Murphy's tenure. For this, senior officials of Voice of the Faithful have condemned Dillon, accusing him of "endorsing" the bishop, which he in no way did ["Misplaced Support," Letters, Jan. 6]. Furthermore, they note that, "it can take victims years, or even decades, to reveal abuse." By this ludicrous reasoning, Dillon should continue investigating for several decades at least.

I suspect the letter writers are bitterly disappointed that Bishop Murphy will not be in trouble with the law, which reveals more about the real aims of Voice of the Faithful than their constantly repeated claims to be "centrist."
