The Roman Catholic bishop of Kansas City has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges that he covered up child abuse, the New York Times reports. Robert Finn is the highest-ranking member of the American church to face criminal charges related to child abuse. Authorities say Finn knew that one of his priests, Rev. Shawn Ratigan, had lewd photos of young girls on his computer, but Finn did not report Ratigan to the authorities for five months.

According to the Kansas City Star, Finn re-assigned Ratigan to live in a mission house in Independence, Mo., after hearing complaints about his inappropriate behavior. Ratigan is accused of trying to take pornographic photos of a 12-year-old girl during his time there.

Finn is affiliated with Opus Dei, a powerful and controversial organization within Catholicism, according to the Times. He pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge.

According to Agence France-Press, the sexual abuse crisis has cost the American branch of the Catholic Church $3 billion since the first allegations surfaced in the 1980s, though few people have been jailed for their crimes. The U.S. Conference of Bishops established a review board that found that "4,392 Catholic priests and deacons sexually abused at least 10,677 American children between 1950 and 2002," the AFP reports.

Only 615 incidents were reported to civil authorities, with 252 clergymen convicted.

Most "so-called 'adults'"

don't prey on halfwits by pretending to have an inside track to God like priests do.
It is much easier tell if a normal person is out to do harm.
Besides, priests make their money by being held to a different yard stick.
They are basically pious bums. For a free ride we'd at least expect them not to molest our children.

If all mothers were held to such rigid yardsticks there would be many more orphaned children.
I don't at all agree with you in saying priests make their reputation based on applying a stricter yardstick to them.
They set role-models and ca. 0.03% of them fail, for which the whole profession gets tarred....

Let's see... if Only 615 incidents were reported to civil authorities and you state that only 0.03% of them 'get caught'
that would mean the US has over 2 million priests. I doubt we have anywhere near many priests in the US today.
That would mean 1 out of every 100 adults would be a priest. I know that would suit you just fine but it's not the case.

I also seriously doubt that as many mothers molest their children as priests do. Besides, mothers have always
been a necessary part of nature. Priests are pious bums who have no useful function other than to tell fairy tales
and ask for money in return.

Paedophilia in catholic church is at epidemic proportions  , reason is very simple and it is called celibacy.

Priests are not allowed to marry , if catholic church abandon celibacy none of this would happen.

Whole catholic church dogma is one big perversion with history of torture(inquisition), blood and support to wrong side aka Nazis in ww2 or right wing regimes in Latin America and Europe for the most of last century.

Seneca has 'mommy' issues.  Its very likely he suffered from childhood abuse at the hands of his mother.

My guess is that she was not only physically abusive but may have been a prostitute.  

It would explain his attitudes towards women.
