Genuinely Disturbing

This story about a Catholic bishop from Nova Scotia who has been charged with possession of child pornography is news most of this week and it's genuinely shocking.

I would imagine that the Canadian Conference of Catholic bishops are involved in serious discussions of contingency plans in the event of massive, angry yet quiet backlash on the part of Canadian Catholics. One would think anyway..

Update: some interesting commentary here

And here, at the comment left on Oct. 2, 10:07 by L. Podles, are startling hints that the RCMP knows far more than the Vatican, to which Canadian Catholics might reasonably respond with astonished outrage over why Lahey was ever appointed bishop in the first place.
