Pope promises action in clerical sex abuse

April 22, 2010

— Pope Benedict XVI pledged Wednesday that the Catholic Church would take action to confront the clerical sex abuse scandal, his first public remarks calling for change since the crisis erupted.

It remains to be seen what exactly is in store. Already, the Vatican has told bishops that they must report abusive priests to police if civil laws where they live require it. It has promised “effective measures” to protect children. And Benedict himself has wept alongside abuse victims in Malta.

Advocates for victims are skeptical that real change is afoot, and say that promises have been made before. But others argue it would be wrong to underestimate the impact of the pontiff’s personal involvement in generating reform.

Start with eliminating known and suspected homsexuals from the priesthood.

Same story different channel...We've been through this before and they always protect the young to have sex with older women..my cause is against the pope now..same action as it was in the 80's Teen prostitution such as now in italy and especially late-term abortion I disagree with catholic Churches policies and The pope and its great anti-christ whoredom as said in Book of Revelation..

It seems to me if they were really serious the vatican would require the reporting to authorities by papal mandate.

Kansas had better join the list of state requireing reporting as well.
