Coaching legend Joe Paterno is out at Penn State over the child sex abuse scandal (oh, the university president is gone, too). Comparisons to the Catholic Church continue to work as the dominant explanation for how this could happen. But Catholic parishioners tended not to riot in protest when, say, Cardinal Law is run out […]

  • Joy

    A difference in perception? Cardinal Law was not “run out of Boston.” He was moved to a cushy job in Rome, which most people outraged by the scandal saw as a promotion.

  • Not a single priest, Cardinal or Bishop has been excommunicated for their involvment in the world wide child molestation scandal of the Church.

    On the other hand, the Church did excommunicate the hospital administrator nun who approved an emergency abortion to save at least the mother’s life.

    Business as usual in the Catholic Church.

  • But all the ignoring of their sex issues at least gives the Church the time to review and applaud an animated movie, “TinTin,” the imaginary figure title character they applaud as being embued with Catholic qualties.

    I shudder to think what they may be.
