Groups to protest Archbishop Carlson’s deposition remarks

Two groups are planning a joint vigil outside the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica on Wednesday to protest comments made by St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson during a deposition last month and released Monday.

The Association for the Rights of Catholics and the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests plan to gather at 2:00 p.m. outside the cathedral on Lindell (at Newstead).

Leaders of the groups say they’re upset that while under oath, Carlson claimed 193  times that he didn’t recall specifics about clergy sex abuse cases and admitted that he never once called police to report abuse in 24 years as a Catholic official in Minnesota.

A firestorm of criticism has erupted coast-to-coast after it came out that Carlson said under oath that he wasn’t sure if he knew in the 1980s whether child sex abuse was illegal.
