Call for the resignation of Bishop Robert Finn of Missouri

In September of 2012, a judge found Kansas City 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. Yet he refuses to resign.

As a founding member of the National Survivor Advocates Coalition and co-founder and President of Road to Recovery, a non-profit charity, I urge the Cardinal Timothy Dolan to show true leadership and call for the resignation of Bishop Robert Finn of the Diocese of Kansas City/St. Joseph after he was convicted of criminal actions regarding a priest's possession of pornographic images of little girls.

Bishop Finn should resign immediately and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops should support his resignation.

I 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.

Call for the resignation of Bishop Robert Finn of Missouri

I'm writing to urge Cardinal Timothy Dolan to support the resignation of Bishop Robert Finn of the Diocese of Kansas City/St. Joseph after he was convicted of criminal actions regarding a priest's possession of pornographic images of little girls.

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.

Bishop Finn should resign immediately and leaders like Cardinal Timothy Dolan and United States Conference of Catholic Bishops should support his resignation.

Sincerely,
