According to Reuters, Cardinal Philippe Barbarin publicly acknowledged his error in the reporting of a pedophilia scandal in his archdiocese. According to reports, Barbarin, the Roman Catholic archbishop of Lyon, France, says that he did not cover up "acts of sexual abuse by Father Bernard Preynat, a priest under his authority."
