"This is a worldwide problem with men who have disordered sexual preferences and we didn't screen them out. We are now — since the Dallas Charter, we are doing a good job here — but men who fail to live up to what the Church teaches and the Church that hasn't policed them," said Fr.

Deacon Ernest Martinez, a Denver police officer, describes the launch of the RISE ministry to help victims of rape that are facilitated by alcohol and drugs.
