The Catholic Church has been rocked by another series of sexual abuse scandals. We hear three different perspectives on this, from a member of the Catholic Diocese of Charlotte, a New York Times reporter and a professor of Catholic Studies.

Earlier this August a report revealed new allegations of child sexual abuse by bishops and other leaders of the Catholic Church in Pennsylvania. Over 300 priests are accused of assaulting more than a thousand victims over 70 years with bishops and other church leaders allegedly knowing about it and working to cover it up.  

Guests:

David Hains, director of communications, Diocese of Charlotte

Elizabeth Dias, reporter, New York Times
