Punishing Complicit Priests

St. Andrew's Catholic Church

The three priests and the teacher were charged with raping boys. Lynn, 60, was accused not of molesting children but of endangering them. A damning grand jury report said that at least two boys were sexually assaulted because he put two known pedophiles in posts where they had contact with youngsters.

It’s a new format for the war on religious pedophilia.  The Catholic Church is cooperating with the criminal proceeding, even though Monsignor Willian Lynn – not accused of actually raping children, but of endangering them – is claiming he did not know the children were at risk.

Lynn faces 14 years if convicted.

Note: I figure since I’ve made this topic my whipping horse, I’d give it a category.
