Boston’s Cardinal O’Malley Calls for Disciplining Bishops Who Coverup Clergy Sexual Abuse

Strong Policies on Abusive Priests Vital, O’Malley Says

Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley said Tuesday that the next pope must make sure the Roman Catholic Church adopts measures to deal with bishops whose “malfeasance” allowed abusive priests to remain in ministry. O’Malley said in an interview that the successor to Pope Benedict XVI will need to continue Benedict’s campaign to get bishops across the world to adopt policies for dealing with accused abusers. That should include procedures for disciplining bishops who protect abusive priests, said O’Malley.” By Lisa Wangsness, The Boston Globe
