I am an incrementalist. Progress is good. I applaud any change the moves in the right direction. Well done Pope Francis!
Catholic bishops who fail to sack paedophile priests can be removed from office under new church laws announced by Pope Francis.
The move, announced by the pope on Saturday, answers a long-running demand by victims of abuse to make bishops responsible if they fail to stop clergy sexually abusing parishioners.
This is a step in the right direction, but then next step is just as important. It is time to fire a few bishops. I’ll send over a list if they need help.
