A meeting with American televangelists, apparently. The gesture came during a three-hour meeting of Pope Francis and Texas televangelists Kenneth Copeland and James Robison, just weeks after the pontiff met with televangelist Joel Osteen and other religious leaders.

During that meeting the Pope asked for forgiveness for the abuse committed by Roman Catholic clergy. From my perspective, being a survivor of sexual abuse, asking for forgiveness is asking to absolve the perpetrators of their crimes. Forgiveness is severing the chains that keep victims bound to the past. What the Pope should be doing is apologizing for the behavior of the perpetrators ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

In its 2013 annual report released Tuesday, the bank, officially known as the Institute for Religious Works, said its net profit totaled 2.9 million euros ($3.9 million) last year, a dramatic drop from the 86.6 million euros ($117.8 million) it reported in 2012.

Consider the 1963 picture of fire hoses and snarling police dogs in Birmingham, Ala., used against African-American students protesting racial segregation. Surely not our civil servants at their best.
