Group Wants St. Thomas More Priest Removed

Robert M. Hoatson, a former priest who now heads Road to Recovery, along with Kevin Waldrip, who claims to be a victim of past clergy abuse by another priest, reportedly handed out flyers and wore placards calling for the Rev. Robert Post's removal.

A small group of protestors reportedly gathered on Saturday at in Darien to call for the removal the church's parochial vicar, the Rev. Robert Post, on allegations of past clergy abuse.

According to a report in the Stamford Advocate, Robert M. Hoatson, a former priest who now heads Road to Recovery, a group that assists victims of clergy abuse, along with Kevin Waldrip, who claims to be a victim of past clergy abuse by another priest while in New Jersey, handed out flyers and wore placards calling for the Rev. Post's removal.

Hoatson is a former priest with the Irish Christian Brothers and Waldrip is a former student at one of the Christian Brothers' high schools, according to the report. They are reportedly calling for the Rev. Post's removal in light of a federal bankruptcy suit pending in White Plains, N.Y., that contains some 462 allegations of abuse allegedly committed by members of the Irish Christian Brothers. According to the report, three of those allegations are against the Rev. Post, with those incidents allegedly occurring some 30 years ago.

In an earlier report in The Darien Times, Brian Wallace, spokesman for The Diocese of Bridgeport, said Hoatson’s accusations are “baseless and misleading.”

“Father Post is a priest in very good standing in our diocese and has served there for 20 years without a blemish or any impropriety,” Wallace told The Darien Times.

According to the bishops every priest accused of sexual abuse was in "good standing" until a preponderance of evidence either put them in jail or forced their removal from their position of power.
