Donohue: Catholic Abuse Scandals ‘Not Pedophilia’
Bill Donohue, head of the Catholic League, is always ready to jump in and defend the indefensible.

In some kind of twisted way, this is supposed to get the Church and Pope Benedict off the hook.
Meanwhile, ABC News Nightline has posted video of their latest report on Pope Benedict’s role in the sex abuse scandal involving Father Marcial Maciel: What Pope Benedict Knew About Father Maciel.
