In One Eye

Once again it looks as if the Church of Rome is trying to sweep its pederasty under the rug.
Roman Catholic Archbishop William Levada, soon to be the highest ranking American at the Vatican, celebrated his last Sunday Mass [in San Francisco] before thousands of admiring parishioners.In a Bush-like appointment,
Levada, of Long Beach, Calif., will leave later this month for his new appointment as head of the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the post held by former Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger before he was elected Pope Benedict XVI. In his role, Levada will help shape Catholic doctrine and play a major part in determining the church's response to claims of priestly sexual abuse.This sure sounds like putting the fox in charge of the henhouse. At the least, it's comparable to the odious Bernard Law's appointment where the enabler was given sanctuary in the loving arms of the Vatican.
