Archbishop denies claims of fondling minor

According to a December 17 article in AP News; a Minneapolis Archbishop has stepped down from his ministry amid allegations that he improperly touched a little boy. The incident allegedly occurred 4 years ago. John Nienstedt, the accused Bishop, has denied the allegation.

Nienstedt went on to say that he has never engaged in any inappropriate conduct.
The news of the allegation came almost 2 weeks after the Minnesota Archdiocese released the names of 30 priests accused of assaulting minors. The church, according to the Huffington Post, was forced to release the names to comply with a court order.

The Christian community, upon hearing the news of another alleged abuse case involving a priest, was outraged.

“This won’t change until the treatment received by the church changes. These are not incidents; they are crimes. And the church that buries this info is a co-conspirator. The Holy Bible encourages us to give honor where it is due. Priests found guilty of abuse are no longer worthy of honor.”

The archdiocese is scheduled to meet with the St. Paul police department on Wednesday.

Is the church receiving preferential treatment?
