Pope Francis moved Cardinal George Pell to Rome from Australia. Now, the pontiff must force Pell to testify before a governmental panel.
Serious allegations against Pell have repeatedly been raised - both through sworn testimony and through media interviews.

Today, Spokane Catholics get a new bishop. We’re worried about how he’ll deal with clergy sex abuse cases.
Thomas Anthony Daly has spent time in the San Francisco archdiocese (26 publicly accused predator priests) and the San Jose diocese (12 publicly accused predator priests). He was promoted to head a seminary by the highly controversial and secretive Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco.

Though the figures are alarming, we are deeply grateful that the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) has disclosed that more than 1,400 prominent men are accused child sex abuse. Even more, we are deeply grateful to the hundreds of brave, wounded men, women and teenagers who have found the strength to break their silence and report their abuse. Their courage is making kids safer.

Archbishop John Nienstedt’s new PR man may be worse than his old one. Tom Halden is choosing to “spin” for both complicit officials AND for predator priests too.

Another brave adult has forced Catholic officials to admit wrongdoing in a child sex abuse and cover up case. Though we're very saddened by her suffering, we are also deeply proud of and grateful to Jerri Hubbard for having the courage to disclose her pain and expose church wrongdoers.
