(Reuters) - The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Santa Fe, New Mexico, will file for bankruptcy protection as it faces litigation arising from accusations of sexual abuse by clergy, its archbishop said on Thursday.

The move comes nearly three months after New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas requested Catholic church officials in the state, including the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, provide his office with documents related to possible abuse by priests.
===========================================
Sexual abuse of minors by priests passed me by, luckily. I was an altar boy for several years & I don't recall any priest even looking at me funny. But I do recall the Sunday sermons being entirely about money the church needed. Not very inspirational.
