Pope’s most important step on sex abuse may come in Kansas City / Cruxnow.com

News yesterday (Sept. 29) that the Vatican is investigating Bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri, first reported by Joshua McElwee of the National Catholic Reporter, is potentially a prelude to the most significant step Pope Francis may ever take with regard to the church’s child sexual abuse scandals…

“What would be new in the Finn case, if he’s removed or otherwise sanctioned, is that a bishop would be held accountable not for the crime of sexual abuse, but for the cover-up, meaning failure to respond appropriately when someone else under his supervision is accused.”

    The Pope. is nothing more or less than a medieval replacement for a KING , so that he could rule the people in religious laws made by him! Christ did NOT COMEE to earth as a King to rule over His people, but .to allow THEM. to follow. HIM. with their Own FREE WILL….
    When do you suppose the Catholic people will figure this out?
