The abuse scandal finally catches up with retired L.A. Cardinal Roger Mahony. You're likely to find more sinners than saints this Sunday at the Superbowl. And the Vatican has a newfound appreciation for Amy Winehouse.

    Bishops engaging in “fraternal correction”? Hardly. Avoiding further scandal and distancing is more like it. If the files were not made public, would any action be taken? Not hardly.

    P.S. The current pope had the same reaction as he read numerous child abuse files. he did nothing except fight to keep them secret and their priest and bishop perpetrators out of jail.
