Lessons regarding conspiracy and the case against Msgr. Lynn

Those interested in the facts about the Commonwealth's conspiracy case against Monsignor Lynn should check this out.  I don't carry a brief for the way certain officials of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia handled priests who did wicked and harmful things to children, not by a long shot.  One should hesitate, however, to carry a brief for a conspiracy of which there now seems to have been stunningly little evidence.  One injustice does not justify another.  Those who harmed children should indeed be punished for what they did, but not for what they might have done but, thank God, didn't do.
