Vatican to Issue Child Sex Abuse Guidelines

Almost a decade after the latest sex abuse scandal cycle rocked the Catholic Church, the Vatican is finally getting around to issuing guidelines for sex abuse cases. It’s tardiness and the Church’s bad record on policing its own regarding the abuse of minors, has left many to ridicule the news of such guidelines. In many corners of the world, the Vatican’s announcement is a “little too late” to say the least. Such guidelines won’t help to alleviate the notion that the Catholic Church has done everything in its power to protect the institution rather than protecting children.
