Tom Doyle in Robert Blair Kaiser's Whistle: "I Was Dead Wrong . . . in Believing the Bishops Would Do the Right Thing"

"In the first months of my involvement in 1984 and 1985 I was convinced that once the bishops learned of this horrific problem they would quickly reach out to the victims and fix the problem. I was dead wrong. I was wrong in thinking the bishops knew nothing of the reality of sexual abuse of the vulnerable by clerics and I was wrong in believing the bishops would do the right thing." 

~ Tom Doyle, "To the True Heroes — The Survivors," in Robert Blair Kaiser, Whistle: Tom Doyle's Steadfast Witness for Victims of Clerical Sexual Abuse (Thiensville, WI: Caritas, 2015) (p. iii).
