Pressure on the Pope: Can the Catholic Church recover from sex abuse scandals?
Date created :
After again apologising for repeated Church scandals on his weekend trip to Ireland, Pope Francis dismissed the cover-up claims of a retired conservative US prelate. The sex abuse scandals keep coming and so do the cover-up claims. What to make of this one from the Vatican's right flank? What next? A more liberal path? Or will the Church stick to its guns on homosexuality, women's rights and the celibacy of priests?
