Church Sex Scandal - The Hierarchy Takes Action!

As happens so often the guilty party goes after the messenger; here is the story in the LA Times. That came via Matt Tabai, who, I think it's fair to say, pulls no punches. To whine about the press coverage indicates that the hierarchy has somewhat missed the point - Andrew Sullivan sums it up pretty well:
It's not just the crime - about the most horrific there is and treated as the most despicable by most prison inmates - it's the cover-up! And the fact that the men who concocted the cover-up were never held truly accountable, never prosecuted, and, in one case, elevated to the papacy!
As a Catholic might say, "Amen".
Update: Maureen Dowd ain't pulling any punches today either.
