Someone else noticed

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | May 06, 2004

A Wall Street Journal editorial today points out that the US Army-- not the media-- uncovered the abuse of prisoners in Iraq. The editorial is worth reading for its own sake, but for our purposes, notice the first phrase in this sentence:

Unlike the Catholic bishops, some corporate boards and the editors of the New York Times or USA Today, the military brass did not dismiss early allegations of bad behavior.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Oh this is telling. Stick me in the eye with the Pope's thumb! What happened in Iraq was disgraceful but surely tame compared to the horrible acts that have been covered up by bishops and cardinals in the last 40 years. Either this or a new Pope comes down on these episcopal miscreants like a ton of bricks and sends the pollyannas running for cover in the forest or the devil will continue his springtime evisceration of Holy Mother Church. Strategically placed spiritual napalm is in order.
