Catholic Church Victimology

A Good Friday sermon delivered at St. Peter's, in the presence of the Pope, likened recent criticism of the church to antisemitism. This is nonsense. The Pope and the Church are not victims of anything--the only victims here are the countless number of young people preyed upon by the depredations of what appears to be a well-known and well-protected element of the Catholic Priesthood. And it looks like that protection went all the way to the top. This one's not going to go away easily, and it certainly won't if the Church circles its wagons like this.
