Bishop Gerald Barnes of the Diocese of San Bernardino said Wednesday he plans to ask Boston Cardinal Bernard Law to apologize for knowingly transferring an accused child molester to the local diocese in 1990.
Barnes is calling for a one-on-one meeting, which could take place as early as today during a historic conference of American Catholic Bishops in Dallas.

Apologies mean nothing. Law should resign!

Well, that should fix everything in the RCC! Why didn't the Pope think of this? /sarcasm
If Law apologizes, then Barnes should punch him in the mouth. If Law refuses to apologize, then Barnes should punch him in the mouth.

A swift kick in the 'nads might be more appropriate. Note to his Eminence Bishop Barnes: you can get steel-toed boots at your local Red Wing shoe store.
If the man didn't have the wherewithal to withdraw from the scene (along with 2/3 of the other bishops), an apology will mean absolutely nothing.
Like all venal politicians, these bishops seek more than anything to be seen doing something, without really doing anything.
