The NY Times profiles the Pope,...

... on Easter Sunday, yet, and as Amy Welborn points out, you shudder when you see the cover story of the Sunday magazine.
Actually, Amy says the article isn't too bad. (Which is, really the best you could hope for, right?) I haven't read it, and probably won't. But I have read her excellent comments on the article, which branch off into broader comments on why secular journalists don't "get it" when they write about the Pope.
Read the Times piece or not, as you wish. But don't miss Amy's.

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/otl/news/story?id=5071820 "Youth swimming coaches, many certified by USA Swimming, the sport's national governing body, have been able to molest young swimmers and then move from town to town, escaping criminal charges and continuing to victimize other under-aged swimmers, an ESPN "Outside the Lines" investigation has found." Is this organization going to fold also? Will the Olympics be a 'joyless occasion' if an American swimmer wins Gold?

When Goebbels tried to use the misconduct of priests to undermine the Pope, Bishop Konrad von Preysing wrote:"The Church of Christ will overcome today decline, error and vice in her own ranks as in the past."Do not be led astray from the belief in the eternal mission of the Church. " "You will triumph over even the mighty in broad bands and more powerful opponents who attack - because the gates of hell shall not prevail."

Obviously the professor doesn't understand history and has no concept of international relations. Just as the Brits tried to eradicate the Church from Ireland, Catholics will endure. The professor obviously doesn't like the Church by how he writes, so expecting an objective analysis of what and how things have transpired is too much to ask. One can only imagine what the students in his classroom must be subject to.
