Get a lawyer, ladies.

Litigation is the only language the Archdiocese of Boston understands.

Sue Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley for trying to insulate Dr. Robert M. Haddad from charges of sexual harassment, or you will help perpetuate the wrist slapping that passes for disciplining sexual predators in the Catholic Church.

File suit against the alleged perpetrator, even if public outrage prompts O'Malley and the board of governors to do today what they should have done last week: fire the physician-administrator with the roving lips and hands, the one who is reputed to earn more than $1 million a year as president of the Caritas Christi Health Care System.
