It would appear that the Bishop of Kansas City-Saint Joseph is leading the way in open governance and intolerance to inappropriate behavior. According to the linked story below, Bishop Robert W. Finn spear-headed an internal governance move that seeks to enhance the openness of the Dioceses and “sift the wheat from the chaff” when it comes to badly behaving priests and others affiliated with the Church in Kansas City-Saint Joseph.
An independent public liaison and ombudsman will begin fielding and investigating reports of suspicious or inappropriate behavior. Bishop Finn said this step would “ensure all concerns are addressed confidentially, respectfully, promptly and appropriately.”The diocese will also undergo an independent review of its current code of ethics and sexual misconduct policy, while reviewing its staff’s familiarity with those policies.
It would be better for him if a millstone were hung round his neck and he were cast into the sea, than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin. (Luke (RSV) 17:2)
