Some of Our Best Friends

Abby Zimet

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.

"The Jews know from experience what it means to be victims
of collective violence and also because of this they are quick to
recognize the recurring symptoms."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
