“Providing ‘more precision … about putting some teeth’ into accountability for bishops who drop the ball on abuse allegations, beyond simply ‘spiritual and fraternal solutions.”
This is a quote from New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan in a recent column, “Getting to the crux of why Catholicism matters,” by The Boston Globe’s John L. Allen, Jr., associate editor for Catholic news. Among the interviews and stories Allen mentions is commentary on what Pope Francis’ recent bishop appointments might mean and a preview of an interview with Cardinal Dolan on fighting sex abuse in the Catholic Church, from which the above quote was taken.
