Maureen Dowd Attacks the Catholic Church

Ms. Dowd you should be ashamed of yourself.

Her journalism is becoming more and more irrelevant.

More Anti-Catholic Falsehoods From NYT’s Dowd

Dowd's recent rant, released on Easter Sunday (Sun. 4/24/11), contains a number of false statements.
1. In addressing the papacy of Pope John Paul II (JPII), Dowd claims that the former pontiff "forfeited his right to beatification when he failed to establish a legal standard to remove pedophiles from the priesthood, and simply turned away for many years."
First of all, long before JPII, there was already a "legal standard" to remove those who abuse children. It is called the Code of Canon Law. As someone who claims to have attended Catholic schools for many years, Dowd already should have known this.
