Back in 2002, the Archbishop of New York, Edward M. Egan, issued an apology on behalf of the Catholic church for their handling of many sexual abuse cases in the past. While nothing could reverse the wrongs done to the victims of these crimes, this apology provided at least some degree of closure for the victims.

Now, he’s taking that apology back. Egan also seems to think there was never any real problem, and that even if there was, he wasn’t obligated to report it.
