Chile: Pope criticized for defending bishop

Pope Francis’s defense of the appointment of Bishop Juan Barros of Osorno, Chile, has angered the bishop’s opponents, who have been holding regular protests.

Bishop Barros has been accused of covering up abuse committed by Father Fernando Karadima, a prominent Chilean priest.

“The vision of a pope closer to abuse victims has been unmasked,” one of Karadima’s victims said, according to aNew York Times report.
