Because of the child abuse scandal related to deaf boys, The Catholic archdiocese of Milwaukee filed for bankruptcy protection today. A priest in the archdiocese, Lawrence Murphy, was accused molesting hundreds of children from the 1950s to the 1970s. The archdiocese has agreed to compensate victims. Murphy died more than a decade ago, but was never defrocked. The Vatican, including the current Pope, knew about the abuse, but never took action against Murphy.
