This seemed inevitable.
The head of the Roman Catholic Church's U.S. sexual abuse oversight panel will resign his post, his spokesman said Saturday -- an ouster brought on by controversy that began last week when he publicly compared some Catholic bishops to "La Cosa Nostra."

The resignation of former Oklahoma Gov. Frank A. Keating as head of the church's National Review Board comes after his words were denounced as "off the wall" by Los Angeles Cardinal Roger M. Mahony and after a majority of members of the oversight panel privately called on him to quit.
You can do whatever you want to Muslims--blow up mosques, detain them for no good reason, physically attack them personally--but, by God, you'd better lay off the homophobic, misogynistic Roman Catholics.
