Anne Burke and three other members are resigning from the bishops' National Review Board, the group charged with reviewing the Church's sex abuse crisis and its response.

"We are a start-up board on a project that has never been done before," Chiles said. "The resignations are moving us out of the comfort zone. The frustration Anne has experienced is the frustration we all share in holding the attention of the bishops. It has been a spotty thing. Some bishops wake up every day thinking [sex abuse by priests] has gone away."
