(1) Some argue that to laicize clerics who have abused minors would be to deprive them of the oversight and support the Church should give them, and to increase the likelihood that they will abuse again, and thus to increase risks to children.(2) Dwyer cites a shrinking clergy and the failure to laicize church administration as envisioned by Vatican II, and the absence of a plan for the church in America ‘ten years from now, twenty years from now in terms of secular worldly power.’(3) Since the Ferry Laws laicized only public schools, Catholics responded to new conditions by transferring their efforts to private schools.(4) No, I think that under these procedures once a priest is suspended, once - of course, once he's laicized , he's on his own, he's no longer a responsibility of the diocese or of the church.(5) Talk about returning laicized priests to active ministry is just beating a dead horse.(6) He is a laicized priest from Fall River, Massachusetts, whose serial predations were on the scale of Geoghan's.(7) In 2004, the number of accused priests laicized by the Vatican grew, while the number of adults and children trained to detect and report sexual abuse increased.(8) In Los Angeles, where 12 priests have been suspended, Cardinal Roger Mahony said that any priest or deacon found to have sexually abused a minor would ‘never return to active ministry’ and should seek laicisation .(9) It said lay people were not allowed to read the Gospel or give the sermon - and laicised priests were not to undertake any liturgical ‘office or duty’.(10) It has nothing to do with laicism or equality between men and women.(11) In some cases the bishop puts pressure on them to apply for laicization , even though they protest their innocence and ardently desire to live out their vocation as priests.(12) No one is arguing that abusers be placed back in ministries with children, but is expulsion and laicization always and in every instance the right response, especially for onetime offenders?(13) In the 1880s Republicans voted for reforms that created an elementary school system with secular, obligatory, and free education as the centrepiece of a laicized state.(14) I submit, therefore, that a great deal of thought and probably some experimentation are needed to arrive at the correct via media between clericalism and laicism .(15) The other person against whom the Garda failed to find a case was laicised .(16) Church policy changed in 1980, restricting conditions for successful laicization and thereby greatly limiting the likelihood that it would be granted.
