Finally, the United Nations is standing up to a monster: the Catholic Church.
Specifically, the Committee for the Rights of the Child released a report demanding the institution independently investigate all cases of priestly abuse. It called for Pope Francis’s abuse commission to
conduct an independent investigation of all cases of priestly abuse and the way the Catholic hierarchy has responded over time, and urged the Holy See to establish clear rules for the mandatory reporting of abuse to police and to support laws that allow victims to report crimes even after the statute of limitations has expired.
Fair enough; the Church still must purge its ranks of pedophiles, just as public schools and other bodies of trust must. It must also assure justice for all the victims around the world by cooperating with governments.
