The Buzz: A Chicago bishop who once blamed the devil for sexual abuse lawsuits against the Roman Catholic Church and proposed shielding the church from legal damages has been named to lead an Illinois diocese. Thomas Paprocki, an auxiliary bishop in the Archdiocese of Chicago, was announced Tuesday as the church's ninth bishop of Springfield.
This appears to be the day of few surprises so far. Scan the text at the link. You'll see the fellow also a lawyer. You'll also see that the Catholic Church is more interested in maintaining it's own internal consistency veiled in some cloak of doctrinal purity than it is to meeting the current spat of problems head-on, suggesting to me that the Church sees no reasonable solution the the growing assemblage of child abuse complaints against pedophilic priests mounting against it.
