Since the August 14 release of the Grand Jury report in Pennsylvania, the Diocese of Pittsburgh has received 50 new allegations of abuse, all of which are prior to 1990 and go back as far as the 1940s.

4:20 – And So It Begins: Priest Attacked in Indiana
On Monday morning Byzantine Rite priest Fr Basil Hutsko was attacked in the sacristy of St Michael Byzantine Church in Merrillville, Indiana. The assailant choked him and slammed his head on the ground while yelling, “This is for all the kids.” Fr Hutsko has never been accused of crimes. He is now recovering and the police are investigating the attack as a hate crime. Fr. Thomas Loya joins us with more as we continue our discussion on the crisis in the Church.

We take a look at it with Jennifer Roback Morse, who also looks at how it all ties into the crisis facing the Church.
