Activists Hope to Stop Mahony from Participating in Conclave – Chris Wolfe Reports

LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Activists have begun a petition drive to get Cardinal Roger Mahony removed from the process of selecting the next pope.

Cardinal Mahony is at the Vatican and met with the pope Thursday asking Benedict to pray for the people of Los Angeles.

Mahony is facing renewed scrutiny for his role in the cover up of alleged sexual abuse by priests.

At least two activist groups want to stop Cardinal Mahony from participating in the election of the new pope.

The groups say they have already collected about 10,000 signatures on a petition.

The archdiocese of Los Angeles says that church law requires that Mahony attend the proceedings at the Vatican.
