Archbishop Edward M. Egan
The staff at BishopAccountability.org is beginning to gather
information about Cardinal Edward Egan's role in the sexual abuse
crisis. Below you will find recommended
readings and the first installment of our Egan
SUGGESTIONS FOR EXPLORING THE EVIDENCE
On Egan's Bridgeport performance, a must read is "Egan
Protected Abusive Priests," by Elizabeth Hamilton and Eric Rich, and
the same team's assessment of Egan's attempt to shift the blame to the
treatment centers, "Doctors:
Church Used Us."
For the dramatic story of how one of the protected priests was
discovered in hiding, see "Abusive
Priest Found in Caribbean Hideaway"and "A
Predator Blessed with Charm."
For the terrible impact on survivors and their families, see
"A Complete Loss of Faith
in Egan: Abuse Victim's Mother Tells of Misplaced Trust" and
"A Family Caught Between
Faith and a Sister's Dark Secret."
We hope that you will read these and other items in our archives,
including Egan's various statements, testimony excerpts, and interviews.
