    The US Bishops who protected sexual predators had blamed the recommendations by "expert" psychologists for their failures. I wonder what is the Chilean Bishops' excuse? All prelates involved in the cover ups need to be removed and replaced. It is noteworthy that in this Chilean case it was mostly the persistence of lay Catholics in their opposition to the appointment of Bishop Barros and their long quest for justice for the victims that lead Pope Francis to begin to act.
