Reason #229: Denied

A year and a half after first being charged with covering up sex crimes in the Catholic Church, Monsignor William Lynn, the highest-ranking church official to be convicted in the scandal thus far, has decided that despite the fact that he hasn't even been sentenced yet, he's had enough jail already, thank you very much,

Alas, his request to be transferred to house arrest was denied today by a Common Pleas judge. Lynn's lawyers claimed that he was being unfairly targeted because of his status in the Catholic Church, saying that he was "taking the weight of the church on his shoulders".

Because if there's one thing the American government hates, it's Christianity, am I right?
