We are glad that Bishop Finn has lost his bid for more secrecy. We are glad that he must turn over relevant documents to prosecutors. This information can only help shed light on how Catholic officials handle abuse reports and predator priests in secrecy.
As this trial nears, we are grateful that Bishop Finn will likely have to face tough questions under oath in open court. During trials, more secrets are exposed showing who conceals child sex crimes. And when corruption surfaces, it spur others with facts and suspicions to come forward, protect kids, help police and uncover truth.
He probably doesn’t understand the difference between a lie and the truth. That’s why he was groomed to become a bishop. To lie, cheat, steal, rape, it’s all the same, the “truth” rarely figures into anything for a bishop.
I’m hopeful that he will be found guilty and serve time in a maximum security prison.
lordy hear my prayer…
