The Lying, Scheming Altar Boy
One thing, though, that seemed to be sadly consistent was the willingness of bishops to either cover up for the real predators or throw good priests with no evidence under the bus based on unsubstantiated accusations.

Pray for all innocent priests who suffered grave injustice because of their refusal to perjure themselves in plea bargains.
