CWN Editor's Note: The Catholic bishops of El Salvador have raised objections to a proposed law that would grant amnesty for crimes committed during the country’s civil war in the 1980s. The bishops said that the proposal would protect wrongdoers without offering any reparations for victims. The proposed legislation responds to an order from the country’s top court, which directed legislators to prepare a law that would provide for a just settlement of civil-war claims.

    Good for the bishops. They should not let the murderers of Archbishop Romero go free.
