Transparency From the Church of Child Rape

In a rush, don’t have time to fully fleshy this out. Give it a read:

Included in the past week’s church bulletin for the Diocese of St Petersburg:

“Given the stories that have come out internationally and nationally regarding sexual misconduct by priests and others, I wanted to issue an updated report at this time,” wrote the bishop, who last gave a report addressing the scandal in May 2006.

In his letter, Lynch said $1.8 million has been paid out during the past five years, with an additional $273,000 to assist victims with counseling and $123,000 in legal fees and costs. About 20 percent of the money paid out over the past 21 years was covered by insurance, with the remainder drawn from insurance reserves.
