Petty Gossip

I have to admit to being surprised by some of the argumentation in defense of the Church I find around the internets, including those coming from the pope himself. It's a simple story, really, bad stuff happened and people covered it up and enabled the perps to do more bad stuff. Not that complicated, really, and "other people did bad stuff too" or "you fail to understand the nuances of catholic doctrine and hierarchy therefore it's all ok" don't really change that.
