Vote of Confidence

Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, recently criticized by a national Catholic panel for his legal tactics in sexual abuse cases, received a vote of confidence this week from the Los Angeles Council of Priests, an elected body representing the Roman Catholic archdiocese’s 850 clergymen.

In a resolution passed unanimously earlier this week, the council praised Mahony for consistently showing “great concern for the protection of children” and for fighting to preserve secrecy on personnel files of priests suspected of child sexual abuse.
