Bishop’s presence at USCCB November meet seen as cause for concern

As the American bishops prepare for their annual meeting, David Gibson suggests that a topic which is not on the agenda could overshadow the scheduled discussions: the status of Bishop Robert Finn, who remains in office after his conviction for child-endangerment.

By remaining silent on the issue, critics say the bishops are not only undermining their own policies — Finn heads a diocese yet would not be allowed to teach Sunday school in an American parish under the USCCB’s rules — but they are undermining their credibility and their claims to have learned from the devastating scandal.
