The U.S. bishops.

The U.S. bishops unanimously decided to allocate $335,000 for a study of the "causes and contexts" of the sex abuse crisis on November 13, the first day of their annual meeting. The money is a down payment on the $1 million the bishops have pledged for the study by John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

According to the Washington Times, the total cost of the study will be $2 to $3 million, with John Jay raising the balance, and will explore the crisis in relation to changes in U.S. society, the differences between abusers and non-abusers, and the quality of individual diocesan responses.
