Philadelphia archbishop Justin Rigali resigns over priest sex abuse scandal

Catholic priests LOVE little boys. So much so, that church leaders will cover up any public accusations – and Philadelphia archbishop Justin Rigali is no exception. In 2005, according to a grand jury, Rigali hid credible sex-abuse complaints made against dozens of Philadelphia priests. The 76-year-old submitted his resignation – for reasons of age (ha, yeah right) – to Pope Benedict XVI last year but was only recently accepted.
