Cardinal Keith O'Brien, who resigned last week as the most senior Roman Catholic cleric in Britain, has admitted that his sexual conduct had fallen below the standards that expected of him. John Mcmaners reports.
In a statement, Cardinal O'Brien said that when the allegations against him became public, he initially contested them because they were anonymous and were unspecific in their details. But now, Keith O'Brien has admitted that, in his own words, there have been times when his sexual conduct has fallen below the standards that expected of him as a priest, archbishop and Cardinal. The allegations against him were made by three priests and one former priest, they date back to the 1980s and relate to an inappropriate behavior.
