CBS News - 02-22


The Archbishop of Chicago spoke Friday morning at the Vatican's summit on clergy sex abuse as a new scandal surfaced back at home. Cardinal Blase Cupich called for accountability for priest sex abuse and said the church "demands a mindset that categorically rejects cover-ups" created out of fear of legal ramifications or scandal. It comes as the Chicago archdiocese admits "a very small number of priests have fathered children" and "four remain priests in the archdiocese."
