The zero tolerance policy was a necessary measure at the time of its adoption; however the policy has proven to be extremely unjust and devastating to our falsely accused priests and clergy.
The policy justifiably protects the rights of the victims but does not provide the same protection for our current falsely accused priests who are in the midst of an appeal. We must defend the basic rights of our accused priests who currently have a pending case. Our Church must bring an end to this injustice immediately.
Recently, our beloved priest and spiritual leader Father Salvatore Rodino was placed on administrative leave. He has been falsely accused and is currently in the process of an appeal to prove his innocence.
We are extremely hopeful that justice will be served as Father Rodino will soon return to his great ministry at St. Jude the Apostle Catholic Community in Wynantskill, New York. Our parish family strongly stands united behind him.
As part of our support efforts we have launched a website in his honor called www.JusticeForRodino.com. This website provides his many past, present parishioners, family and friends an opportunity to seek positive and encouraging ways to support Father Rodino and each other during this difficult time.
