Cardinal Keeler, RIP

After John Carroll and James Gibbons, William H. Keeler was probably the most well-known and forceful Archbishop of Baltimore. He shocked his priests when, early in the sex-abuse crisis, he released all the names and information of those accused — and act that upset priests but spared Baltimore much of the scandal that plagued other areas. Cardinal Keller has died at 86.
