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.
