Oh, You Pope

Posted by Dan Savage on Mon, Mar 29, 2010 at 9:44 AM

The pope really has a gift:

Pope Benedict, facing the worst crisis of his papacy as a sexual abuse scandal sweeps the Catholic church, declared today he would not be "intimidated" by "petty gossip", angering activists who say he has done too little to stamp out paedophilia.... Faith in God, he said, led "towards the courage of not allowing oneself to be intimidated by the petty gossip of dominant opinion".

Yes, all those children raped—so much petty gossip. And this pope is certainly not going to be intimidated by the "dominant opinion" where child rape is concerned.
