Skip to comments.Billboard Calls for KC Bishop Robert Finn to Resign

A billboard on south Interstate 35 just past Armour Road spells out a blunt message:
For the good of the people Bishop Finn must RESIGN!
The sign also highlights an online petition that has been circulating for a month, calling for Bishop Robert Finns resignation.
The Kansas City-St. Joseph Diocese declined to comment on the billboard or the petition. And the man who organized the petition drive said he had nothing to do with the sign.
I was really surprised, but I have no idea who paid for it, Jeff Weis said of the message, which is among a series of ads displayed in cycles on the electronic billboard.
And the chairwoman of a national group that held a news conference in Kansas City last month to call for Finns resignation said Thursday that we as an organization did not put it up.
However, said Kristine Ward, of the National Survivor Advocates Coalition, We have been talking with supporters there about billboards.
Weis started the petition last month after Finn was found guilty of failing to report suspected child abuse in the case of the Rev. Shawn Ratigan. The priest was convicted in August of producing or attempting to produce child pornography.
Weis, who was born and raised Catholic in the Kansas City-St. Joseph Diocese, said he organized the petition because he believes Finn no longer has the credibility to lead local Catholics.
My moral compass just says this is wrong in so many ways, he said.

Ah yes......isn't that always the cry?
I don’t know about Finn, but Dolan should!
Well, inviting 0bama to dine, speak and embracing the baby killer for one.
Meanwhile Clear Channel takes down billboards in Cleveland reminding everyone that Voter Fraud is a Felony after pressure from Van Jones.
I met Bob Finn in the late 70s. We were stationed in Rome, and Finn was then a young seminarian studying at the American College there. He managed to work his way up the Diocese’s chain of command.
The minute he starts supporting same sex marriage, abortion and the ordination of women the sign will come down.
I’ve read the truth about the Finn case and this was not a man who fragrantly ignored the safety of children and sheltered abusers.
