This was reported on CNN this morning.

I suspect it's been sanitized a little by the Bishop, but that doesn't really matter. He argues for the victims rights and for that I commend him. Good for him.

Thanks for posting this Trish. I saw the following and thought it was worth highlighting:

Quote:
Ohio bishops have suggested a church-created registry of both perpetrators and those who have participated in cover-ups and insist that internal reforms are adequate.

"Healing is not achieved by lawsuits but by working with those who have suffered abuse, ministering to them pastorally and helping to meet their individual needs," said a statement from the conference, which represents the Ohio church in public matters.
Sounds like more double-talk doesn't it?
