McGuire removed from priesthood
A Jesuit priest convicted of molesting Chicago-area students in the 1960's has been removed from the priesthood.
Donald McGuire was officially defrocked Friday, according to the Chicago order of the Society of Jesus.
On top of his 2006 molestation convictions, McGuire has also been accused in cases involving other children between the 1960s to 2002.
Sunday, the activist group Survivor Network of those Abused by Priests, or SNAP, said not enough is being done to deter priests from abusing children.
"Cardinal George has just as much responsibility to ensure the safety of children&whether it's a predator priest that's diocesan or it's a predator priest that's a Jesuit," said SNAP's Barbara Blaine.
The archdiocese had no comment on the matter and referred ABC7 Chicago to the Jesuits, who had not returned ABC7's phone calls as of Sunday evening.
