Catholic school scrubs bishops names of the campus buildings

SCRANTON, Pa. – A Roman Catholic university in Pennsylvania, says he was acting in solidarity with the victims of sexual abuse and the removal of the names of the three bishops of the campus buildings.

The University of Scranton said late Monday that three bishops in the local diocese were found in the last week’s Pennsylvania grand jury report to have covered up crimes by priests and children in harm’s way.

The move is part of the growing consequences of a grand jury report that says that a succession of the leaders of the church helped cover-up of abuse by some 300 Catholic priests in Pennsylvania affected more than 1,000 children, and possibly many more, since the 1940’s.

The Harrisburg Diocese announced it was also, along with the leadership of the church accountable for sexual abuse of children by priests, and the stripping of the church properties of the names of the bishops goes back at 70 years of age.
