The Roman Catholic Church will treat accusations, proceedings, and decisions involving clergy abuse with a lower level of confidentiality, Pope Francis announced Tuesday. While in-house legal proceedings still will not be public, the new rule says official secrecy will no longer impede civil law proceedings. Francis also increased the age separating child and adult pornography from 14 to 18.
