Pope removes Kansas City bishop for abuse cover-up

Msgr Robert W. Finn forced to stand down over paedophile priest

(ANSA) - Vatican City, 21 APR - Papa Francis on Tuesday accepted the enforced resignation of Kansas City bishop Robert W.Finn, the first US bishop to be convicted of failing to alert federal authorities about a priest suspected of child sex abuse.
    The bishop's removal comes after a Vatican probe into the case of Father Shawn Rattigan, who was eventually sentenced to 50 years in jail for possession of child pornography he obtained through church contacts.
