Pope Rejects Resignations of Irish Bishops after Child Abuse Report
The Pope has rejected the resignations of two dublin bishops after their Diocese was severely criticised by the Murphy commission in a report into child abuse in Dublin.
The Vatican said the Pope had not accepted the resignations of Bishop Raymond Field and Bishop Eamonn Walsh, who served as bishops in the Dublin diocese during the period that was investigated by the Murphy commision.
The Bishops had initially resisted calls to quit, but had offered their resignations in 2009 in light of the Murphy report.
The pair have since been given revised responsibilities within their diocese.
How can these men not be sacked after having ruined the lives of many young, innocent children?
