Vatican Priest likens criticism to anti-semitism

Quote
A senior Vatican  priest, speaking before Pope Benedict XVI at a Good Friday service, compared the world’s outrage at sexual abuse scandals in the Catholic Church to the persecution of the Jews, prompting angry responses from victims’ advocates and consternation from Jewish groups.

The Vatican spokesman quickly distanced the Vatican from the remarks, which came on the day Christians mark the Crucifixion. They underscored how much the Catholic Church has felt under attack from recent news reports and from criticism over how it has handled charges of child molesting against priests in the past.

...

At least the world is wising up to Godwin's law >_>

Why do I have the feeling the guy 'itched' to make that comparison?
It's like he waited all of his life to try and play the victim.

It seems to have blown up on him quite nicely though. Damage control fail.
