I-T’s Bruce Rushton Reports On Catholic Diocese

The Illinois Times got plenty of attention and criticism for its recent coverage of questionable conduct involving a priest in the Springfield diocese.  A 9-1-1 phone call from the priest was placed online.  That audio went viral on the internet and the story was picked up by numerous websites.

The Illinois Times’ Staff Writer Bruce Rushton joins WUIS’ Sean Crawford to talk more about the incident and the larger question of whether or not the diocese is doing enough to prevent problems in the priesthood.

WUIS also reached out to the diocese and gave Bishop Thomas Paprocki a chance to talk with us about the incident and how it’s being handled.  So far, he has not accepted that offer.
