In the news:

Priests accused of sexual abuse have historically been sheltered and had their crimes covered up by the Catholic Church.  Because of their inaction, the Catholic hierarchy has received criticism for its lack of action in removing, reporting, or laicizing the accused priests.  There have even been some calls for Pope Francis to resign.

Former Vatican official Carlo Maria Vigano published a letter in August 2018 calling for the pope’s resignation.  He accused Pope Francis of ignoring the decades of sexual abuse committed by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.  According to Vigano, Pope Benedict XVI had ordered Cardinal McCarrick to be sanctioned and to live his life in prayer and seclusion, but Pope Francis removed these sanctions after becoming pope in 2013.  Defenders of the pope have countered this call for resignation from Vigano as an action by the conservative clergy who oppose Pope Francis’ leaning towards reform.

The pope has also faced criticism from progressives in the church.  They say that the hierarchy hasn’t done enough to address the years of damage the sexual abuse scandal has done to the church and to the victims.  Many victims have found the pope’s previous dismissals of the abuse hurtful, and he was met with protests when he visited Ireland in 2018.  It was observed by reporters that Pope Francis’ crowds were not as large as those for the last pope to visit Ireland, Pope John Paul II.

Settlements in United States court cases have revealed documents showing the Catholic dioceses’ preference for moving priests accused of sex abuse rather than offering any sort of punishment.  Only after years of moving between parishes were repeat offenders removed from the public, often as a result of retirement rather than any punishment afforded by the church.  Dioceses were also shown to have failed in their duty to report allegations to the proper authorities.  As a result, some lawmakers have made reporting sexual abuse allegations mandatory.

Marie Collins, an Irish sex abuse survivor who had been a member of the Vatican’s Commission for the Protection of Minors, resigned from the commission due to the Catholic hierarchy not putting the safety of children first.  The commission had been created by Pope Francis to make recommendations of ways for the Catholic Church to offer such safety and protection, but she tendered her resignation after finding that a basic recommendation requiring all correspondence from sexual abuse victims should receive a response was being ignored.  She stated that the church handled that as it had handled the entire abuse scandal, by saying one thing in public and acting differently behind closed doors.
