Comeuppance for the Church Hierarchy

“A dose of criminal justice was long overdue in the pedophile priest scandal. It was meted out in Philadelphia Tuesday (July 24, 2012) when Msgr. William Lynn became the highest-ranking Roman Catholic official in the United States to be sentenced to prison. He was convicted of child endangerment and sentenced to up to six years after a trial that starkly detailed how diocesan leaders shielded predatory priests and rotated them through parishes to prey anew. The sentence should be a clear warning to church officials that criminal law, not church evasion, is the law of the land when it comes to protecting innocent children.”

From editorial in The New York Times, Comeuppance for the Church Hierarchy, July 29, 2012
