Critics begin giving Pope Benedict his due for handling sex-abuse cases
Catholic World News - December 09, 2010
Writing for Macleans magazine in Canada, Brian Bethune observes that while Pope Benedict XVI was the target of savage criticism earlier this year for his alleged complicity in sex-abuse problems, the Pope’s critics have gradually come to see that Benedict has been open and honest in handling the problem.

Are we really surprised that the NY Times did not publish this? Why would they, it would admit that they are bias and wrong.

Surprisingly fair article from the usually secular Canadian press! The ususal rabid comments afterward. I wonder why this article, or a counterpart, has not appeared in the American press. Just asking.
