MOVE FOR NEW CHARGES AGAINST BISHOP FINN AS THE KANSAS CITY CATHOLIC SEX SCANDAL CONTINUES!!!



Today's presser from "Mean" Jean Peters Baker was a bit of a bombshell . . . Bishop Robert W. Finn and the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph could face additional charges of child abuse, according to an announcement by Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker.

Here's the fallout . . .

For immediate release: Monday, May 7

Statement by Barbara Dorris of St. Louis, Outreach Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 862 7688 home, 314 503 0003 cell, SNAPdorris@gmail.com)

We applaud the new charge against Bishop Finn. At the same time, however, this kind of legal maneuvering by the prosecutor wouldn’t even be necessary if not for Bishop Finn’s desperate hair-splitting defense moves.

We also applaud Baker for seeking more information on these credibly accused pedophile priests: Fr. John Basket, Fr. Thomas Cronin, Fr. Mark Honhart, Fr. Earl Johnson, Fr. James Lawbaugh, Fr. Stephen Muth, Fr. Thomas Parrott, Fr. Bede Parry, Fr. Michael Tierney and Fr. Anthony Pileggi.

It’s pathetic that Finn’s lawyers, paid by parishioner donations, claim that the state law requiring prompt reporting of known or suspected child sex crimes is too vague.

(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. SNAP was founded in 1988 and has more than 12,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers and increasingly, victims who were assaulted in a wide range of institutional settings like summer camps, athletic programs, Boy Scouts, etc. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org)

Those Catholics pay for the same thing with their donations.

Felony conspiracy and obstruction of justice could send him away for real time.

I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but the Catholic Church has lost all credibility. Coverup after coverup has revealed the hierarchy for what they are: perverts and embezzelers. I quit going to church in 2011

The Catholic Church has indeed lost a great deal of credibility.

Shame on them ... and on those who continue to be "enablers" by providing cash contributions at Mass.

Perhaps Peters is following the Philadelphia case of conspiracy against members of the archdiocese?

An international cartel of greed and corruption.
