The Priests Are Sick, Their Followers Sicker. And The Pope?

Describing clerics who sexually abuse children as "gravely immoral," the octogenarian pope warned that the scourge of pedophilia "is found not only in your dioceses but in every sector of society."
Benedict is right. Why must we hold these diddlers priests to a higher moral standard? No reason at all.

But unlike his predecessors, Benny the Pope is determined to prove that he is part of the solution. He offered this very well thought out plan to address the sexual abuse problem.
"It calls for a determined, collective response," he said
After your mind has de-boggled completely, read this sentence and remind yourself that this is the man chosen to lead an organization that spreads the word of Jesus:
Benedict {and Bush} expressed concern for Christians in war-torn Iraq...
Don't you wish the Pope and his bishops were actually a little bit more like the dreadful society that surrounds them? Maybe then they would be more compassionate towards all men and women and not just the Christians in Iraq.
