Look! Over there!

Days after a Church-appointed commission found cases of sexual abuse of children – typically starting around the age of twelve – in nearly every diocese and every Church-run religious school in Belgium, the Pope went to England and warned against “atheist extremism” that, he said, posed a threat to “those traditional values and cultural expressions that more aggressive forms of secularism no longer value or even tolerate.”  It’s a good thing all those child-molesting priests, and the bishops who covered up for them, were men of faith; think how badly they might have behaved had they been atheists.
