Bishop Who Covered-Up Catholic Priest Pedophile Ring, Refuses To Resign

Leaked docs show New York Bishop Richard Malone returned predator priests to ministry
A New York bishop, who was exposed as part of a “predator priest” pedophile ring cover-up in the Catholic Church, has refused to resign after his role in the crimes was revealed in leaked documents.
Bishop Richard Malone of Buffalo, NY, is refusing to step down after leaked files show that he swept allegations of child abuse against clergy members in his diocese under the rug, and sent the accused priests back to work in the ministry, leaving them free to re-offend. In a statement posted to the diocese’s website on August 26, Bishop Malone admitted that priests he oversees had “fallen short of the standard” concerning the sexual abuse of minors. “My handling of recent claims from some of our parishioners concerning sexual misconduct with adults unquestionably has fallen short of the standard to which you hold us, and to which we hold ourselves,” he told his Catholic flock.
According to Breitbart, in rejecting the calls for his resignation, Malone said, “The shepherd does not desert the flock at a difficult time.”
