At Vatican Service, Persecution of Jews Is Invoked

ROME - A senior Vatican priest speaking at a Good Friday service compared the uproar over sexual abuse scandals in the Catholic Church - which have included reports about Pope Benedict XVI's oversight role in two cases - to the persecution of the Jews, sharply raising the volume in the Vatican's counterattack.

A leading advocate for sex abuse victims in the United States, David Clohessy, called comparing criticism of the church to persecution of the Jews "breathtakingly callous and misguided."

"Men who deliberately and consistently hide child sex crime are in no way victims," he said. "And to conflate public scrutiny with horrific violence is about as wrong as wrong can be."

Hey Vatican! Dig Up!

These people are ridiculous. They just cannot get it. Their arguments from moral authority are totally worthless and useless. They took their moral authority and flushed it down the toilet when they enabled child rapists year after year then showed no sign of remorse. They have this model in mind that you can take a pedophile, pray at him for a while and his sexual drives will magically go away.
