Just in time for Easter, and in case you've lost track, the helpful
folks at Gawker offer a list of all the stuff the Catholic Church
has blamed for its pedophilia scandal, from
homosexuality to the media to the devil. Today's corker: criticism of
the Pope's protecting serial abusers is just like anti-Semitism - well,
except for the concentration camps.

of collective violence and also because of this they are quick to
recognize the recurring symptoms."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Don't Exist.
