New Catholic Bishops Told They Don’t Have to Report Sexual Abuse to Police
By Lucy Westcott On 2/11/16 at 10:11 AM
During a presentation for newly appointed bishops, French Monsignor Tony Anatrella said they don’t have a duty to report abuse because it should be the responsibility of victims and their families to go to the police. The comments were first reported by John L. Allen at the Catholic news site Cruxnow.com earlier this week.
Anatrella, a psychtherapist and consultant to the Pontifical Council for the Family and the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers, is known for his controversial views on homosexuality, including that the acceptance of homosexuality in the West is creating “serious problems” for children. He also helped to write a training document for newly appointed bishops that further spells out the church’s stance on clerical sexual abuse.

We got the following dates:
According with FTIR = 300 BC + 400 years;
with Raman spectroscopy = 200 BC + 500 years;
and multi-parametric mechanical = 400 AD + 400 years.
This means that we have an average dating of 33 BC + 250 years
facts in the last 30 years around this unique archaeological object, the Shroud of Turin or Sindone, the burial cloth of Jesus Christ.
Excuse me but your post is clearly off topic, here we are not interested in to check the matching of the object with the scriptures,
Catholic Church sex abuse cases by country
This page documents Roman Catholic sex abuse cases by country. The Catholic sexual abuse scandal in Europe has been documented by cases in several dioceses in European nations. Investigation and widespread reporting were conducted in the early 21st century related to dioceses in the United States of America; several American dioceses were bankrupted by settlement of civil lawsuits from victims. A significant number of cases have also been reported in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and countries in Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia.
In 2001, lawsuits were filed in the United States and Ireland, alleging that some priests had sexually abused minors and that their superiors had conspired to conceal and otherwise abet their criminal misconduct. In 2004, the John Jay report tabulated a total of 4,392 priests and deacons in the U.S. against whom allegations of sexual abuse had been made. The numbers of reported abuse allegations and court cases has increased worldwide since then.
The U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has asked for detailed information on the full extent of child abuse worldwide by priests, monks and nuns. It has also asked how the Vatican prevents abusers from contacting additional children and how the Vatican ensures that known crimes against children are reported to the police. In the past there were issues over the Church hierarchy failing to report abuse to law enforcement and allowing abusers further contact with children. 1 November 2013 was set as a deadline for receiving the information.
Conclusion: Due to the heterogeneity of the data and the evidence of a strong linear trend the twelve measurements of the age of the TS cannot be considered as repeated measurements of a single unknown quantity. The statement of Damon, Donahue, Gore, and eighteen others (1989) that “The results provide conclusive evidence that the linen of the Shroud of Turin is "medieval” needs to be reconsidered in the light of the evidence produced by our use of robust statistical techniques.
Until less intrusive methods of age assessment are developed, samples
will presumably be confined to the edges of the TS. However, the preceding
discussion does provide guidance on a suitable design. If n samples are to
be taken, the perimeter of the material should be divided in to n intervals
of as equal size as possible. Locations are then selected at random within
each interval, preferably subject to a restriction on the minimum distance
between samples. The intervals might also be chosen to exclude corners of
the material, if it is thought that contamination of these regions is more
