Irish essayist sees 'venomous' attack on Church
Catholic World News - October 14, 2011
Writing in the Irish Times, John Waters deplores the "venomous" media criticism of Catholic priests.
"Carefully nurtured public prejudice ensures that, when condemning a church figure, it’s impossible to go too far," Waters argues. He elaborates:
Under cover of the legitimate requirement to expose wrongdoing by church figures resides a vicious demeanour of hostility and dismissiveness towards Catholicism, which it is impossible to challenge without being accused of defending the indefensible.
