Philadelphia's Cardinal Rigali to resign

Report: Philadelphia's Cardinal Rigali to resign - Local News - Philadelphia, PA - TODAY.com

Report: Philadelphia's Cardinal Rigali to resign amid scandal
Report released in February accused Archdiocese of failing to stop cases of sexual abuse


Quote:
A press conference announcing Rigali?s resignation will take place sometime this week, according to blogger Michael Sean Winters.
Winters also named four people who were in consideration as replacements for Rigali: Archbishop Wilton Gregory of Atlanta, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver, and Bishop William Lori of Bridgeport.
Reports of Rigali?s resignation come in the midst of a turbulent time for the Philadelphia archdiocese. An explosive grand jury report released in February accused the Archdiocese of failing to stop numerous cases of sexual abuse.
As a result of the report, 21 priests were suspended and two priests, a former priest and a Catholic school teacher were arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting two young boys.
Rigali, 76, was appointed the eighth Archbishop of Philadelphia in 2003, and previously served as the Archbishop of St. Louis.

So are we to understand that >>> "As a result of the report, 21 priests were suspended and two priests, a former priest and a Catholic school teacher were arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting two young boys.".....all 23 priests sexually assaulted those "2" boys?

If so, suspension and or arrest is insufficient punishment, maybe permanent suspension from certain ill used body parts would be more appropriate!


Geeez, 2 steps forward and one step back!

The Church views it as much ado about nothing. I wouldn't send an unarmed child to a Catholic School.
