CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Ronald Gainer of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, has ordered diocesan institutions to remove the names of former bishops who have been implicated in the sex-abuse scandal. In anticipation of a grand-jury report on abuse, the bishop said that the names of all Harrisburg bishops after 1947 should be removed from buildings and halls. He also released the names of 71 people who have been accused of abuse, and said that victims would no longer be bound by confidentiality agreements signed with the diocese.
