Cardinal George again defends Pope Benedict
Catholic World News - April 02, 2010
Cardinal Francis George of Chicago, president of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has again defended Pope Benedict’s leadership in dealing with the clerical abuse crisis. “It was Pope Benedict who gave us, in different ways, the ability to handle this crisis more quickly and in a way that helps to heal,” for he “enabled us to keep the predators out of the priesthood permanently in ways that were not possible before,” Cardinal George said in an April 1 radio interview.

I'm glad the Cardinal again is defending the Holy Father, but it seems to me the collected U.S. Bishops should step in and defend him also. Of course, it would probably take a year or two (or three) to get a statement they all agree on, but better late than never.
