The following is a post that I made on August 8, 2014 on another blog. It is more relavent today than ever. I am going to repost it now.
I get worried that Edward McKeown will walk the streets again. He should never get out of jail.
Father Edward McKeown abused across Middle and East Tennessee. The bishop and many, many priests knew. McKeown left the priesthood on March 1, 1989 without anyone knowing how many little boys he had raped. The church never told the Catholics what McKeown had done. They let statutes of limitation run and sent their "problem" back out into the community at large to abuse more boys.
McKeown is not the only criminal here. The bishop and any priest who knew what McKeown had done should be sitting in the prison cell with him. That won't happen but it should.
Don't let McKeown ever get parole. Give the rape victims of McKeown at least that small amount of justice.
