Archdiocese of Los Angeles settles four sex abuse cases for $10 million

Now, because this ex-priest Michael Baker molested four children from a span of 26 years from 1974 to 2000, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has settled four sex abuse cases for $10 million.  This is sickening and very frightening to acknowledge why we have a messed up society today, too many people over various denominations ignoring alleged claims against their clergy members.

Michael Hennigan, an archdiocese attorney.  Mahony still has a lot of power to help select the next pope, very scary.
