CWN Editor's Note: A Catholic high school in the Diocese of Wheeling, West Virginia has removed the name of former Bishop Michael Bransfield, who is now under investigation for alleged sex-abuse violations. Bishop Bransfield’s resignation was accepted in September, on his 75th birthday. Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, who as apostolic administrator is conducting the investigation, approved the decision to remove the retired bishop’s name.

    Oh, I wonder if we will ever hear anything of this investigation. Will there be transparency or will it be locked away? Why did Abp Lori agree to take his name off the school? For sexual harassment, whatever that is? Or is it much worse?
