TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! PETITION CALLING FOR KANSAS CITY BISHOP FINN RESIGNATION REACHES MORE THAN 100K SIGNATURES AND COUNTING!!!
Advocates standing against Bishop Finn are still hard at work calling for accountability in the aftermath of The Kansas City Catholic Sex Abuse Scandal.
To wit . . .
TKC TIPSTERS RECENTLY TOLD US THAT THE PETITION URGING BISHOP FINN'S RESIGNATION HAS RECENTLY CROSSED THE 100K SIGNATURE MARK AND CONTINUES TO GARNER SUPPORT!!!
Sources also note that the petition hopes to convince the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops that there is a groundswell of homegrown opposition to the embattled Kansas City area cleric. So, there's a hope that Bishop Finn doesn't resign, the Catholic hierarchy can remove him from his duties according to Church doctrine.
Take a look at the petition for yourself.
Here is the money quote:
"Bishop Robert Finn is head of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph. He is also the highest-ranking U.S. Catholic cleric to be convicted in a decades-long child sexual abuse scandal.
"In September of 2012, a judge found Bishop Finn guilty on one misdemeanor charge after he failed to report a priest who had taken or possessed hundreds of pornographic pictures of young girls. Even though Finn was found guilty in a court of law, he remains the Bishop of the Kansas City – St. Joseph Diocese. Now, many members of our community feel he is unfit to lead and should resign. He is currently the highest-ranking U.S. Catholic cleric to be convicted in a decades-long child sexual abuse scandal."
While mainstream media attention has moved on from our Kansas City Catholic Sex Abuse Scandal, it's worth noting that harsh feelings and consequences of the ruckus still linger and influence our local culture.
