It gets media play because of the institution. The Catholic Church will always be a target.

No. It gets media play because the institutional church, in the personages of large numbers of bishops, did not imitate Him whom it purports to follow.

The Church is a target in regards to sexual abuse because the bishops' first concern was themselves, and not the victims.

That's cold-blooded.

Yes, except for one little thing. Thus far, the only cardinal to resign or even give a hint of resigning is the only one in a major problem diocese who also happened not to be liberal and did not lean toward modernism and dissent. Law has a conscience. It seems that the others don't.

That being said, this is still bad journalism.
