Pope Accepts Resignation Of German Bishop

VATICAN CITY -- The Vatican says Pope Benedict XVI has accepted the resignation of a leading German bishop who is being probed for allegedly physically abusing minors and financial misconduct.

The terse Vatican announcement on Saturday cited no resignation for accepting the resignation of Augsburg Bishop Walter Mixa, who offered to step down two weeks ago amid persistent allegations that he hit children while a priest decades ago and claims of financial irregularities at a children's home.

    The Pope 'accepts' his resignation? Accepts? What a scarey looking person. I know he will get his due reward in the after life.
