Conn. bishops urge parishes to fight new law (Extends Statute of lim. on child sex abuse cases)
Conn. bishops urge parishes to fight new law

HARTFORD, Conn.
Connecticut's Roman Catholic bishops are urging parishes to fight legislation that would extend the statute of limitation in civil child sex abuse cases.

The bishops asked pastors to include a bulletin insert this week that warns of potentially "disastrous" financial fallout.

The insert says the bill could dredge up claims more than 70 years old and place all church institutions at risk, even parishes free of claims.

The insert is signed by Hartford Archbishop Henry Mansell, Bridgeport Bishop William Lori and Norwich Bishop Michael Cote.

Current law gives victims until age 48 to sue. The new law would allow people above that age to join in lawsuits filed by younger people.

6. Yeah, that's all they're worried about! The money.
Phuck the kids that were traumatized by what happened to them. Don't worry about the predator priests that got away with molesting the kids.

Organized religion? Hello? You're not looking so good anymore!
