Bullshit! Bullshit! Bullshit! Fair minded people in the broader community will be pissed off when the “adjustment” isn’t pushed upward to the FULL SEVEN YEARS!
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia released a statement on Tuesday after the sentencing saying that:
There is legitimate anger in the broad community toward any incident or enabling of sexual abuse.
They also said the trial:
Has been especially difficult for victims, and we profoundly regret their pain.
But – and there’s always a “but” from the foul Catholic Church:
Fair-minded people will question the severity of the heavy, three to six year sentence imposed on Msgr. Lynn today. We hope that when this punishment is objectively reviewed [on appeal], it will be adjusted.
