PHILADELPHIA (AP) Jurors in a landmark priest-abuse trial heard Monday about a priest-turned-camp prowler and another who allegedly bragged about having sex with three boys in one week.

Also Monday, two jurors were replaced by alternates, but a gag order prevents lawyer from discussing the reasons for the move.

Monsignor William Lynn is on trial for child endangerment and conspiracy. Lynn, 61, is the first Roman Catholic church official in the U.S. charged for his handling of priest-abuse complaints. Prosecutors say he helped the church bury them in secret files, far from the prying eyes of investigators, civil attorneys and concerned Catholics.

The true end to this, or at least improvement in the conditions allowing CSA, is when the ones who ignored it are brought to account. One of the most important aspects of the Sandusky case is that some of the Penn State officials have been criminally charged.

I shudder to think what's in other "secret church files" yet to be discovered....
