'Stand beside him'

'Stand beside him'

I am proud of Bishop John T. Steinbock for standing up for Father Eric Swearingen. I would like to stand beside him.

I wish the press would simply ask the question "What if?" Father Swearingen is innocent. It seems the mere accusation of child molestation by a Catholic priest is enough to prove guilt. How sad.

I know Father Eric to be a fine, good man and an exceptionally effective minister of the gospel. My heart aches for him and Juan Rocha, too. That's what Christianity is about.
