Re: “Forgive you, Father

David Pierre; Alleged is reserved for claims that are unproven; these are. Further, the Helena Diocese filed for bankruptcy which is an admission of guilt, and is an acceptance of liability for the claims against it. The Bishop even said that he is giving the survivors the benefit of the doubt and will not question their claims. Read the article.

Re: “Forgive you, Father

This is a fine article by Jimmy Tobias. The survivors accounts of abuse are so truthful, so impactful.. how can anyone not respect them for their courage in coming forward and telling what happened to them. At this point in time they have nothing to gain by retelling their stories; however if by coming forward and sharing, that if they have helped someone else to come to terms with their own childhood sexual abuse, this is why they participated in this interview. The Helena Diocese is claiming poverty, and has refused to fund any part of the settlement.. this is wrong and they must be forced to contribute to the survivors for the damage they have caused untold numbers of Native Americans and non-Indians to suffer. It is only just that they do this.

  • Forgive you, Father

    Decades of abuse by the Catholic Church resulted in multimillion-dollar settlements and the bankruptcy of the Diocese of Helena, but it will take more than money to make things right for survivors.
