Rome wasn’t built in a day

Understatement of the Week, courtesy of Pope Siegheil:

As part of an Easter Monday prayer, the Roman Catholic leader acknowledged the church is in “times of difficulty.”

Well, you know how it goes:  admitting there’s a problem is the first step.

Maybe in another 20 or 30 years they’ll stop blaming the media and the victims and translation services for it.  Vatican City wasn’t built in a day either, you know.

UPDATE: *Ahem*  Just more anti-Catholic bigotry from the New York Times, I suppose…

    “Times of difficulty” – more subterfuge, imho.

    Translation. “We are being persecuted! Shriek!”

    The Persecuted are shrieking at high speed and top volume. At FD, Pacheco has posted about 20 threads defending the pope.

    I think he protests too much!

    I’m still trying to get over that “Petty Gossip” remark. Headlines in every paper & magazine in the world & they call it petty gossip. As Christopher Hitchens calls them: A clutch of hysterical, sinister virgins.

    No, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

    But it was burned in a night.

    Bruce – They keep coming out with one outrageous statement/excuse/blame after another. It would be so novel if they just took responsibility and admitted that the whole thing was one big clusterfuck of a coverup.

    But it was burned in a night.

    Anti-Catholic bigotry! 🙄 😉

    But, but, but, JJ the cover-up is based on religious dogma. Roman Catholic Church clergy can only be judged by ecclesiastical – purportedly God-given – law.

    That’s why the Vatican Taliban and higher clergy don’t turn priests accused of child sexual abuse over to the appropriate secular legal authorities.

    If they admit this is WRONG, then imagine what other religious dogma issued by the pope or the Magisterium could also be wrong.

    deBeauxOs – It’s hard to believe they can’t see how covering up child abuse is wrong, no matter what kind of “authority” one answers to.

    It all boils down to what the clergy in the Roman Catholic Church truly value.

    They claim that it’s human life, The Fetus©™, The Family, blah blah blah.

    In reality Pope Maledict and the Vatican Taliban value power, wealth, and blind obeisance in their followers.

    It’s hard to believe they can’t see how covering up child abuse is wrong, no matter what kind of “authority” one answers to.

    Amen!

    There are a lot of things that seem patently obvious that all kinds of people fail to see.


Wait. What?
