Top U.S. bishop accused of sex abuse

SPOKANE, Washington (AP) -- A woman has filed a claim that she was sexually abused more than 40 years ago by Bishop William Skylstad, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and leader of the Spokane Diocese.

This claim seems fishy to me, especially considering everything the bishop has done to prove that we are taking the scandal seriously. It also seems suspicious to me that her claim was only just filed, with Friday being the deadline for claims.

Either way, Bishop Skylstad, the diocese of Spokane and the woman who filed this claim are all in need of your prayers!
