A scandal in the Catholic Church

Allegations that Catholic Church officials covered up molestations by current and former priests have caused a crisis for the church. Church officials around the country now stand accused of knowingly moving priests who sexually abused children and teen-agers to different parishes -- without disclosing the reason for the transfer. Many Catholics are angry and disillusioned, and the credibility of church officials has been damaged.
