Lincoln, Nebr., Catholics call out their bishop

 |  NCR Today

The intrepid souls of Call to Action Nebraska were out front of the Lincoln diocese this week, pleading/demanding that Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz participate in the annual sex abuse audits conducted by the U.S Conference of Catholic Bishops.

The Lincoln Diocese is the only one in the United States that refuses to participate in the audit system established in 2002 to address the issues of sexual abuse of children by clergy.
