    Maureen Dowd, as most readers know, writes a regular op-ed column for the New York Times. Her dislike for certain people and institutions is quite obvious, mostly because she fixates on them in nearly every column: men, the Catholic Church (specifically, the pope, bishops, priests), Republicans (especially men who are leaders in the GOP)...

    Isn't it fortunate that she never joined the convent?

    Her passionate prose may arise from having to be the voice of 48,000 voiceless--the sisters in the LCWR.

    NY Times Journalists Again Reveal Why They Are Obsessed with Catholic Church Sex Abuse

    Maureen Dowd and Nicholas D. Kristof, New York Times


    The New York Times has shown yet again that the abuse of children does not really bother them unless it involves the Catholic Church. But if there were still any doubt, the Times has now made it perfectly clear that the decades-old abuse of minors by Catholic priests is simply a rhetorical tool with which it can bludgeon the Catholic Church because it does not conform to the paper's left-wing liking.

    It was only a week ago when a New York Times editorial fretted about the Catholic Church's efforts to align the dissident leadership of a conference of left-wing nuns with Church doctrine, and the paper predictably used the scandals as a useful cudgel to promote "progressive" dissent.

    Now Times' opinion writers Maureen Dowd and Nicholas D. Kristof have double-upped on the Grey Lady's predictable tactic with similar Church-bashing columns running just a week later in the same Sunday issue.

    They seem unafraid to be controversial, and so of course it's not surprising that their detractors would strike back.

    Ah, good old Maureen. ^_^ I'll never forget how Fred Reed skewered her----and quite accurately, too, I might add: Fred On Everything

    Dowd is one angry, bitter, disturbed woman. I am grateful that I do not have live inside her head....that level of hatred for everything and everyone around her must be extremely difficult to live with.

    Wow. Followed by the angry lazy bigotry of Carl Olson and Christian Tappe.

    Right, because the correct response to the priest sex abuse scandal is to complain about the critics, and say its none of their business.

    It don't apply to them when they can give a reasoned logical explaination, unlike the misquotes of Maureen.

    HUH! Where do you find that?
