    Hopefully more will follow.

    U.S. monsignor found guilty on one count in church abuse case - chicagotribune.com

    PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - A monsignor who oversaw hundreds of priests in the Philadelphia Archdiocese was found guilty on Friday of one count of endangering the welfare of a child, making him the first senior U.S. Roman Catholic Church official to be convicted for covering up child sex abuse.

    The jury acquitted Monsignor William Lynn on two other counts - conspiracy and another charge of child endangerment.

    Lynn was accused of what prosecutors said was an effort to cover up child sex abuse allegations, often by transferring priests to unsuspecting parishes.

    Predatory homosexual pedophiles. Apparently we have tolerated the criminal behavior in the churches and on the football field. Why are left wingers still mad that the BSA is allowed to discriminate against hiring homosexuals?
