The Catholic Church is facing yet more scandal, as members of the clergy are now coming forward with serious allegations of abuse.
While both sides of the government saying sorry to the victims of child sexual abuse, they must now act on it. No longer will the people tolerate a Royal Commission and a speech.

Despite the recommendations enacted, those in the church are still not required to disclose what they hear during confessions.
While the government has made steps to reverse our history of child sex abuses, they’re still protecting those who enabled those crimes.
