There was even more bullying from the Catholic Mafia in New York. This was from a NY TIMES article dated 6-5-2009:
BISHOP AVIDLY OPPOSES BILL ON CHILD-ABUSE SUITS
Bishop Nicholas A. DiMarzio of Brooklyn repeated a warning this week that he has leveled at lawmakers for months: if the statute of limitation on child sex-abuse lawsuits is temporarily lifted, as pending state proposes, a cascade of very bad things will happen.
His Roman Catholic diocese and others will go bankrupt, Bishops like him will be forfced to close churches and schools. And wrathful constituents will punish the politicians who, in his view have made this all happen."
"But in the battle over the sex-abuse bills, which has been introduced for several years but never had a change of passage until now, DiMarzio has mounted such an urgent and aggressive sally into the political realm that some elected officials and community leaders have questioned whether he has overstepped church-state boundaries."
Indeed, Ms. Rice, I thought that in order to maintain non-profit status, churches had to remain neutral on political issues.
This story obviously has parallels to the George Reardon story. Maybe there is hope for the Reardon victims because the NY bill has been proposed several times and now it looks like it will finally succeed.

Assembylwoman, Margaret M. Markey, who co-wrote the bill said campaign literature labeled her as anti-Catholic and "I have no doubt Bishop DiMarzio was behind it."
"B ut some politicians fe3el that the bishop's advocacy sometimes verges on bullying."
