    Kansas City Bishop Is First to Be Charged Criminally With Sheltering Abusive Clergyma

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. Kansas City's Catholic bishop was charged Friday with not telling police about child pornography found on a priest's computer, making him the highest-ranking U.S. Catholic official indicted on a charge of failing to protect children. Kansas City-St. Joseph Catholic Diocese Bishop Robert Finn, the first U.S. bishop criminally charged with sheltering an abusive clergyman, pleaded not guilty to one misdemeanor count of failing to report suspected child abuse. Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said Finn and his diocese, which also was charged with one count, had "reasonable cause" to suspect a child had been abused after learning of the images...

    I hope this is the first of dozens and dozens of prosecutions against the hierarchy in the Catholic church that intentionally and wantonly covered for these pedophiles. Cheers to the Kansas City, MO D.A.!!!!

    I think it's great. The Catholic Church was gave chance after chance to deal with this themselves. It seems they won't. Hopefully they set an example here.

    Hopefully this sets an example that harboring or hiding child molesters will get you into trouble and will not be tolerated.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
