Belgian bishop quits after admitting abuse April 23, 2010 at 11:57 AM CDT - Updated June 15 at 8:01 PM BRUSSELS (AP) - Belgium's longest serving bishop has stepped down after admitting to sexually abusing a youngboy. The resignation of 73-year-old Roger Vangheluwe, the Bishop of Bruges, is the first in Belgium since a child abuse scandal began engulfing the Roman Catholic Church in recent months. His resignation was announced at a news conference by Belgium's Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard Friday. He said Vangheluwe's resignation shows the Catholic Church in Belgium wants to "resolutely turn a page on a very painful" topic. Copyright 2010 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
