Pope's critics attack him on his strongest points, journalist says

Catholic World News - April 07, 2010

Vatican-watcher Sandro Magister of L'Espresso makes the observation that critics of Pope Benedict XVI have launched furious salvos of criticism on precisely those points on which the Pontiff has been an effective leader-- most recently, the handling of sex-abuse cases. Why is the Holy Father attacked on this strong points? Magister replies:

The beginning of an answer is that he is systematically attacked precisely for what he does, for what he says, for what he is.
