He should go to prison for life. Pedophiles who diddle kids should be executed and those who protect them should go to prison where they can be diddled by Bubba and Tyrone so they know what it feels like.

Now if Rmoney would publicly denounce the FLDS for raping little girls, we'd be making some headway.

This is just more of the war on the catholic church. The church is protected by the constitution. The priests are subject only to the will of the bishops, not the secular authority.

Why isn't there more news about this?
I know more about Tom and Katie's divorce settlement than I do about the Priest, the Bishop, and the Diocese conspiring to create and enable child porn!

And it has not escaped my attention that NONE of the 'holy people' have asked for prayers for the victims in their own diocese. WHY? The Vatican speaks on their outrage of everything else, but has said NOTHING about a convicted Bishop hiding a pedophile! WHY!?!?!

These actions speak VOLUMES about the people running the church. If they are able to spend $1.3 MILLION DOLLARS on a guilty defense, and pay educators and staff next to nothing to help teach kids.... It speaks VOLUMES!

I believe him through his actions.
It is terrible that this monster didn't get at least ten years.

Whenever, when will a judge remember the child victims in a trial of a major religious figure?
