USA Today offers contrasting views on Pope Benedict's handling of abuse
April 12, 2010
In contrasting op-ed columns, USA Today gives two very different views on Pope Benedict's treatment of the sex-abuse crisis. Stephen Prothero of Boston University says that the Pope has repeated the same mistakes that American bishops made. CWN editor Phil Lawler disagrees, arguing that any objective observer should recognize the Pontiff as a leader in solving the problem.
