Andrew Sullivan on the Pope's complicity

Andrew Sullivan's Daily Dish blog on the Pope's complicity in priest sexual abuse in Germany.

How is the Pope Different from Cardinal Law?

Excerpt: "If this person headed a secular organization, or if he were a politician, he would be forced to resign. Why are the standards for the Catholic church so much lower on tolerance of child abuse than the rest of society? On what grounds can this Pope reprimand bishops and priests in Ireland or the US when he seems deeply entangled in the same kind of cover-ups himself?

"When, in other words, will the real victims come first? And moral responsibility meaningfully taken?"
