Bill does indeed claim that Fr. Joseph Jiang is innocent. But he also made the same claim about Fr. Robert Osborne. And Osborne's Catholic supervisors - with the Marianists and the St. Louis archdiocese - refuse to put him back on the job after he was sued for child sex crimes. That suit settled.
Bill makes lots of unsubstantiated claims that deter child sex abue victims from speaking up, exposing molesters, contacting police and protecting other kids. Being a gadfly is one thing. Being a bully who hurts those already hurt by child molesters is something else.
