You may have read already that the Jackson County prosecutor has filed an indictment against Bishop Robert Finn on a misdemeanor charge of "failing to report child abuse". He has pled not guilty. If he weren't a Catholic bishop he might be able to expect a fair trial. If he weren't a faithful Catholic bishop he might expect not to be charged.
Rest assured, says the prosecutor, that "it is all about protecting children."
Right. I totally believe that.
There is a lot that could be said about this. I won't say it here. If you see me around, I'll be happy to chat.
This is a blatant attempt to take down a good Bishop.
This is persecution.
You don't agree? I don't care. It's still true.
Pray for Bishop Finn. Faithful bishops, clergy and laity will be increasingly targeted by the state. History repeats itself.
