Australia’s Catholic Church has done less to protect children than its counterparts in similar countries, according to a new report on sexual abuse by a research center at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
The church was rocked in June when Cardinal George Pell, one of the pope’s top advisers, became the highest-ranking Roman Catholic prelate to be formally charged with sexual offenses. He is due back in court in Melbourne in October.
