JS: At least 8 Wisconsin priests are on the Jesuits' latest list of accused abusers

At least eight Catholic priests with ties to Wisconsin are among those identified Monday in an ongoing effort by the Jesuit religious order to make public the names of priests and brothers with credible allegations of sexual abuse of minors and vulnerable adults.

The Jesuits' USA Midwest and Maryland provinces released the names of 89 priests and brothers with credible or established allegations of sexually abusing a minor since the 1950s, several of whom had already been named among the 151 identified Dec. 7 by the west and south-central provinces.

The Midwest list includes four accused of molesting minors while they were serving at Marquette University or Marquette University High School. Allegations against four others stem from their time at Campion High School in Prairie du Chien.

It also identifies two additional Chicago priests supervised by former Marquette University President Robert Wild, who pulled his name from a new $108 million residence hall this fall, saying he mishandled allegations against three priests when he led that province from 1985 to 1991.

Supress them. Send em to China, that's what most of them want the world to be like, so why not just live there.

I know the whole suppress the Jesuits thing has become popular lately, but there are many excellent Jesuits out there doing good work. The suppression of someone like Fr. James Schall I think would be a grave injustice.
