From Fox News:
Pope Francis on Thursday issued a new church law about reporting clergy sex abuse and cover-up, outlining investigation procedures when the accused is a bishop or religious superior. It’s the latest effort by the pope to respond to the global eruption of the sex abuse and cover-up scandal.
Some key points of the new protocol, entitled “You are the light of the world”: — Makes all Catholic priests and religious sisters mandated reporters for sex abuse and cover-up to church authorities. Provides whistleblower protections saying they may not suffer “prejudice, retaliation or discrimination.”
