Catholic Cleric Started Career In Kansas City And Now He Could Be First Bishop To Confront Criminal Charges For Sexual Abuse

He could become the first U.S. bishop ever to face this kind of criminal prosecution and lose his title from the Vatican . . .

"Prior to being named a bishop, Joseph Hart had served in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph for the first two decades of his priesthood, following ordination in 1956. Although his ecclesial career has spanned over five decades, serving in two states where he was widely popular, he has been trailed by allegations of serial abuse - which he has consistently denied - dodging both civil and canonical adjudication for more than two decades . . ."

Can we ease up on all the Catholic crap being shoved in front of our eyeballs?

Its very hidden that a large number of Catholic abuse victims are little girls. They end up with physical damage due to intercourse. I have NO respect for their parents or the emergency room workers that keep it quiet because "priests are God's representatives". Some older girls end up getting abortions. This PROVES Catholicism is a cult. Not God's church.

In a word, 9:16, you anonymous creep: NO.

We need MORE reporting. Less ignoring. Kudos to Tony for publishing this. It's sex abuse. It's a corrupt non-profit organization. No we are not gonna look the other way any more.

If you don't want to read it, nobody is forcing you. Not like those young boys were forced.

Shame on you. Go read the sports page.

The Catholic Church is all about erect penises. Its a male run organization. Nuns are treated as rubbish. it always has been. Centuries ago boys were castrated to remain in the choir and be sex slaves. Yes there are pervs everywhere. But there should be a whole lot less in a church that calls itself the true church of God, filled with Godly followers that follow the scriptures. But that's NOT what the catholic church is. Funny that you don't hear of nuns being charged with sex abuse. Just the perv priests. Its a penis organization. Womens lib should attack it. But they are too scared.
