Doria2 supports indicted Bishop Finn. Doug thinks the bishop was “in over his head”.

Andy P/Doria2’s letter to the bishop:

Dear Bishop Finn,

I am writing from the Archdiocese of New York.

I must say that I thank God for good holy Bishops such as yourself. Yes you will be attacked, but remember what our Lord said, “They will hate you because of Me, but remember, they hated Me first.”

Take the slings and arrows as they are just stepping stones on your way to Paradise and know full well that there are millions of us out here who stand shoulder to shoulder with you as tug boats slowly turning the Barque of Peter back to where it belongs.

God continue to bless you, Your Excellency and keep up the good holy work you have begun.

Doug Lawrence comments:

If the case has any merit, we should expect a protracted legal battle, then a plea bargain, with a token sentence. If not, after a suitable delay, all charges will be dropped.

Bishop Finn is known as a straight shooter, but his own public statements about his personal failings in this matter made him a very easy target for the grand jury, as he admitted everything in advance, and in writing.

That was simply too much temptation for the secular authorities (who obviously DON’T BELIEVE the bishop’s account) to resist … and a very bad move, politically, on Bishop Finn’s part.

The bishop should have simply made a good confession, and kept the rest of the details to himself.

There’s good reason that Jesus, in the Bible, reminds us, “Behold I send you as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be ye therefore wise as serpents and simple as doves. (Matthew 10:16)

The bottom line: Bishop Finn was in, over his head. One way or the other, he mishandled the matter. Now, he must deal with the consequences.

As the article in the Remnant says: I ask you all to pray that the truth of the matter comes out swiftly and completely. St. John Fisher, pray for Bishop Finn.

  1. Bishop Finn protected a known pedophile for over a year, corrupted evidence in a felony case, and should have been charged with reckless child endangerment. However, he has 4 expensive lawyers, and they managed to diminish the charges.

    Regardless, teenagers for decades will read about what he did, and will read about tens of thousands of children that were raped by Catholic priests and protected by Catholic bishops, and the next generation of Catholics will be a “tithe” of the current one.

    Everyone who sided with the pedophiles and pedophile protectors instead of the children will have to answer before God for it.

    Get your story and excuses ready now, and good luck with that.
