MO - Pope ousts one bishop but let’s convicted one stay
In a highly unusual move, Pope Francis has suspended a German bishop for financial misdeeds.
But the pope - like his predecessors - ignores bishops who have concealed or are concealing child sex crimes. He should suspend them promptly, starting with Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City Missouri, who was convicted last year of withholding evidence - hundreds of sexual photos of young girls - from police.
(TKC Note: Actually, the conviction was not reporting his suspicions of abuse but you get the point)
There are many bishops who should be suspended. But Finn is the most clearly proven wrongdoer. His guilt was established in an impartial trial in open court, despite a bevy of experienced and highly-paid lawyers fighting on his behalf.
Many Catholics no doubt applaud the German bishop’s suspension. But think about the message it sends hundreds of thousands of victims of child molesting clerics: “The Pope cares more about saving the church’s money than about saving the church’s children.”
One reason to suspend a wrongdoer is to deter others from emulating him. So what’s more crucial to deter? Child sex crimes and cover ups? Or financial extravagance?
