Vatican tribunal puts bishops in line for sacking – NZ Herald News.

Pope moves to stop senior clergy protecting paedophile priests.

Pope Francis has taken the biggest step yet to crack down on bishops who cover up for priests who rape and molest children, creating a new tribunal inside the Vatican to hear cases of bishops accused of failing to protect their flock. The initiative, announced yesterday, has significant legal and theological implications, since pretibishops have long been considered masters of their dioceses and largely unaccountable when they bungle their job, with the Vatican stepping in only in cases of gross negligence.  …..

In 2001, the Vatican required all bishops and religious superiors to send abuse cases to Rome in a bid to crack down on the abusers. Thousands of priests were sanctioned and hundreds defrocked, but the bosses who enabled them to continue abusing were never punished. The Vatican had long argued that the pope had little power to sanction bishops when they botched cases of abuse, citing the decentralised structure of the church and the theological concept of a bishop’s relationship to Rome.
.
That argument served the Vatican well in the face of US lawsuits seeking to hold the pope ultimately responsible for abusive priests, with the Holy See insisting that the pope doesn’t exercise enough control over bishops to be held accountable when they covered up for priests who rape children. A new tribunal that could enable the pope to essentially fire bishops, and not just passively accept their resignations, would seem to undercut the Vatican’s argument of a hands-off pope as far as bishop accountability is concerned.  ……
