Call for U.S. Bishop Robert Finn to resign

We, the community members of Chicago Archdiocese urge the Archdiocese of Chicago leadership to support the resignation of Bishop Robert Finn from the Kansas City – St. Joseph Diocese.

In September of 2012, a judge found Bishop Robert Finn guilty on one misdemeanor charge after he failed to report a priest who had taken or possessed hundreds of pornographic pictures of young girls. Even though Finn was found guilty in a court of law, he remains the Bishop of the Kansas City – St. Joseph Diocese. Cardinal Francis George and the Archdiocese of Chicago should protect children and call for Finn's resignation.

Bishop Finn should immediately resign and the Archdiocese of Chicago should support his resignation.

NOTE: We encourage everyone to join this campaign, but if you're a Catholic person or survivor of abuse, please say so in the "Why People Are Signing" section. Thanks!
