Commentary: Catholic Bishops

Catholic bishops are gathering in Washington, D.C., to vote on a policy on priests who sexually abuse children. The latest draft includes revisions by the Vatican. Survivors of abuse say the revisions will make it harder for the bishops to fight abuse. Commentator Hugh Burns, a Catholic priest, says bishops who assigned pedophilic priests to their parishes should be held just as responsible for sexual abuse as the priests themselves.
