Deaf, blind Vatican says wildly stupid things

You have to love the Vatican's obtuseness. They are determined not to understand their own crimes. Today I found this in the news:
BERLIN (AP) — The Vatican's head of doctrine says critics in North America and Europe are conducting a "concerted campaign" to discredit the Catholic Church that is resulting in open attacks against priests. 
Mercy! Those poor, innocent priests! And let it be known -- this has nothing do with with priests raping children. Heaven forfend! It's happening only because of the intrinsic nastiness of North Americans and Europeans. Don't they know that every priest is holy, that they are god's representatives on Earth?

But wait, there's more!
In an interview published Saturday by Germany newspaper Die Welt, Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Mueller likened the sentiment directed toward the Church to that of the pogroms against Jews in Europe
Yes, it's just like what happened to six million innocent Jews. Because the priests are pure as snow. They are high-minded, holy beings who are only on this Earth to do god's work. And now this nastiness has descended upon them -- for no reason at all! Mercy! What a cruel world.
