You've heard the one about the fox guarding the chicken coop, right? Nine months ago the Archdiocese of Cincinnati hired a convicted felon who was on probation in two states as the supervisor of its criminal background check program. This all surfaced this week, and he was fired; the personnel director who hired him also resigned. How does this happen?
I understand about forgiveness and giving people second chances, but you don't employ a felon to supervise a background check program. And, every person hired for that position ought to have a very thorough background check; obviously that was not done.
This is one of those things that makes my professional-side cringe (I consult companies on HR-related issues); and it doesn't do much to raise my confidence in the church's post-sexual abuse crisis reforms, either.
