Some San Diego Catholics are complaining that the diocese had them removed from a question and answer session on the Catholic clerical sex abuse scandal.
Bishop Robert McElroy of the San Diego diocese announced in August that there would be a series of eight “listening sessions” throughout October and into early November. One of the things that happen at these events is the bishop fields questions from the laity about the clerical sex abuse crisis.
The second listening session, on Wednesday, was a packed house. Some lay Catholics who tried to attend the event were asked to leave, and not just for lack of space. Two men told FOX 5 San Diego that they were removed from Wednesday’s event.
