I just don’t quite know what to make of this quote from New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan posted by Atrios – responding to evidence that Pope Benedict XVI had participated in the cover-up of child abuse by clergy.

The leader of the nation’s second-largest diocese urged his congregation to pray for the pope, saying he was suffering some of the same unjust accusations once faced by Jesus.

I just don’t remember that part of the Gospels.  Was it mentioned in the Book of John?  John was always my least favorite of the Gospels.

Don’t worry though.  The Pope won’t be intimidated!
