Rod, the only guarantor of the bishops’ compliance is going to be Caesar

“When you neglect the Big Laws, you don’t get freedom. You don’t even get anarchy. You get the small laws.” – G.K. Chesterton

If the bishops continue to neglect the Big Laws about Not Raping Little Boys and Not Protecting Those Who Do then Caesar will be the only guarantor left that they don’t get away with that. It’s Caesar’s job, after all, to punish people who rape little boys and obstruct justice. Look for lots of legislation, some of it sensible, a great deal of it draconian, micromanaging, and absurd, from Caesar, if the bishops refuse to get a clue.
