Irony: Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston sues Whirlpool for putting a parish in “unreasonable risk of harm.” No, unlike former priests, the Whirlpool man didn’t sexual abuse 100’s of children while Whirlpool officials did nothing.

Allegedly, a defective Whirlpool refrigerator causes a serious fire at a parish and Whirlpool knew about it, but didn’t prevent it. So, the Boston Archdiocese is suing for $10 million. They’re probably short on funds after having to kick out $150.8 million in sexual abuse lawsuits and related costs since 2002. More on that scandal here.

WEYMOUTH, Mass. — The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston claims in a $10-million lawsuit filed against Whirlpool Corp. that a faulty refrigerator caused a fire that destroyed a Weymouth, Mass., church.

The complaint filed in Norfolk Superior Court alleges Sacred Heart Church was destroyed on June 9, 2005, because of Whirlpool’s negligence.

The complaint claims the Michigan company knew it subjected the 134-year-old church to an “unreasonable risk of harm.”
