The battle to reform the Catholic Church has been plagued by a long-running sexual abuse crisis. Author, historian and journalist James Carroll argues that male dominance is the root cause of the church's issues. His new memoir, "The Truth at the Heart of the Lie," links his own crisis of faith as a priest to the history of the church itself. He joins Michel Martin to discuss his call for reform.
