Something to hide?

Now why why why would the Catholic Church want to rush off to the Supreme Court and beg them to hide documents related to how they handled allegations of priests raping children?

I can't imagine why.

Probably because the documents would show what we already know. The church covered up the rapes and (in most cases) moved the rapist to another Parrish so he could continue to rape children undetected.

I know. Sounds harsh. But it is WHAT HAPPENED. Time and time again.

I hope the court tells the church to pound salt and give up the documents.

Conn. diocese seeks appeal to US Supreme Court

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A Roman Catholic diocese in Connecticut sought Friday to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court to keep under wraps sex abuse documents that could shed light on how a prominent retired cardinal handled the allegations.

Bridgeport Diocese officials asked the state Supreme Court to continue a stay on releasing the documents while it asks the nation's highest court to review the case.

The state court has ruled that more than 12,000 pages of documents from more than 20 lawsuits against priests should be released. Those documents have been sealed from public view since the diocese settled the cases in 2001.
