ESH thinks that it looks like all those diocesan “protecting God’s children” programs are not working. And, maybe because they target the laity working with young children rather than where the problem REALLY is: homosexual clerics. Since most dioceses have made such programs mandatory to be a parish or diocesan volunteer, ESH has taken the position of non possumus: the bishops will have to go find volunteers elsewhere until the problem is actually dealt with and not projected to unculpable lay volunteers.
ESH recommends the same to other laity.
