Not seeing any law enforcement presence here.
If a law was broken, you would think the cops would be on it.
Imaging if these pedo-priests were black?
There wouldn't  be any left.
Those crosses look a lot like guns when you are a tighty whitey cop.

Will the Pope polish the bishop after the probe is over?

Nay, the bishop will be soundly flogged.

White guys. In white robes.

lol right.

I am so glad our religious institutions get to investigate themselves. I am sure this will lead to proper charges and the church will do the right thing.

And I get looked down upon for not supporting an organization that openly supports diddling kids.

It's time to clear house. If they refuse to oust the f*ckers, I want to see our Gov. revoke their tax exempt status. Game over.

They ran out of kids in his diocese?

Why the hell has US law enforcement ignored this for as long as they have?

Trials can be held with the defendant in absentia.

At a minimum assets should be seized and distributed to victims.

This has absolutely nothing to do with me.

I swear.

I think I am prejudiced against all roman catholic bishops and hereby declare all of them, without exception, to be seriel child rapists. period.

I can see the Bell and the Candle, but the Book is going to require some extra lubricant as a probe. Not sure there's time for that.

Pope Francis accepted the resignation of West Virginia Bishop Michael Bransfield, who is accused of sexually harassing adults.

So the child molesters are still being protected, gotcha.

Children and their accusations can be manipulated, coerced, or dismissed.  Adults and their accusations are also the financial props that keep the doors open.  Follow the money.

Do any of those old vatican dudes -not- look like evil movie villains (if not straight up Emperor Palpatine stand-ins)? I know you shoudn't really judge a book by it's cover (even if the cover will tell you what kind of book it is) but damn, those are some evil looking farkers.

You're just saying that because they've spent decades protecting child rapists.

As someone raised Catholic, and only renounced in adulthood, I hope this closes the place down. I know it won't, because the stupid is so strong it burns, but, fark the farking farkers. The lot of them can rot in hell.
