While Father San Nicolas emphasizes that he is not taking sides and believes the accused is innocent until proven guilty, he agrees that the archbishop should step aside when he is the accused.
"The accused somehow needs to step out of the system of evaluation or investigation and that’s just objective with any kind of investigatory policy, and apparently that is lacking in the church," explains Father San Nicolas. "Even myself, I’m the principal here at Father Duenas. If I ever got accused, it would be ridiculous for me to be the end all and be all of deciding my innocence or guilt. As a leader of the school it would be best for me to step aside and let other people decide on the validity of any accusation."
