Chilean Reverend Accused of Sexual Assault

In Chile, Reverend Fernando Karadima has been accused of sexual assault by four men. Father Karadima is one of the most influential and respected priests in Chile, sometimes even considered a "living saint." These four men, who were once devout followers, have said that they were sexually abused for up to two decades. Chile is one of Latin America's most devout counties, and the people are very upset, some directing their anger at the accusers. These people say that such a well-reputed man in his position could never do such a thing. Chile's Catholic Church has had to deal with many cases of sexual abuse recently, and are still deliberating as to how to deal with the case.
