Uh, the priest died in 1983 and the alleged abuse took place in 1978. Not developing . . . Story.

Some may remember a spirited conversation by myself and Jarhead over abuse by Catholic priests where I mentioned Father Francis by name.

I know 3 boys who used to go to his house and do 'chores' for spending money. The person in the article may or may not be one of them, I don't have contact to verify but, if it's not, then that's at least four.

I've often wondered how many he molested that were less able to defend themselves (the ones I knew were in their teens and knew what they were doing- still wrong)that we may never know about.

Is it possible a lawsuit could follow the allegations? I suppose the Diocese could be sued, but it would be weird with the accused dead. Just wondering outloud.

Dig him up and put him on trial!

We've done it before...

I bet he died of some unusual cancer

"He was allegedly abused in the priest's rectory."

Now I know what a rectory is.
