PA- Harrisburg Bishop dies, SNAP responds

The 65-year-old bishop of Harrisburg, Joseph McFadden died unexpectedly this morning. Our sympathies are with his family and his loved ones. Although we do not rejoice in the death of anyone, we hope the Pope takes this opportunity to appoint a new bishop who will prove to take a tough stand against clergy sex abuse.

We also hope the next bishop will post the names of credibly accused predators on the diocese website. Anyone who saw, suspects, or was abused is encouraged to come forward, tell police and start healing.

    Id like to know the circumstances in which he died. Was he ill? It’s always a “bring back JP1” and the circumstances leading up to his death. The rcc is not ever accountable to anything but getting rid of "negative PR. Very curioyus!
