The Case Against Msgr. Lynn

A case of the cover-up not being worse than the crime.
Cardinal Anthony J. Bevilacqua ordered aides to shred a 1994 memo that identified 35 Archdiocese of Philadelphia priests suspected of sexually abusing children, according to a new court filing.
The order, outlined in a handwritten note locked away for years at the archdiocese's Center City offices, was disclosed Friday by lawyers for Msgr. William J. Lynn, the former church administrator facing trial next month.
They say the shredding directive proves what Lynn has long claimed: that a church conspiracy to conceal clergy sex abuse was orchestrated at levels far above him.
"It is beyond doubt that Msgr. Lynn was completely unaware of this act of obstruction," attorneys Jeffrey Lindy and Thomas Bergstrom wrote.

what goes up will always come down!
"All illegal activity, (wether it be "small" in some peoples mind, but not small enought to "hide out of FEAR"), comes to an inevitable end, and sometimes tragic.

anyone surprised by this? after those two grand jury reports, I have to say I'm not. And to think that I held Cardinals Krol and Bevilacqua in such high esteem back in the day!
