Catholic priests are still raping kids, Catholic bishops are still covering for the rapists and lying to authorities—the news out of the Archdiocese of Minnesota is absolutely appalling and there's no reason to believe that this is only going on there. The safer assumption: that's just the only diocese with a whistle blower willing to go to the press and the authorities. And now they're not just raping kids and protecting rapists, they're ignoring "new rules" requiring swift action that were put in place in response to the clerical sex abuse scandals. So, yeah, once again, and for the millionth time...

If kids got raped at Denny's as often as they get raped in churches, it would be illegal to take your kids to Denny's.

Also, too, I'm thinking the pope is underestimating here. And he would, wouldn't he?
