Pedophiles an afterthought in full page ad 'Quit Catholic Church' March 2012 NYTimes

But Wow, the Times would not have even accepted this ad ten years ago, as my friend pointed out, musta woke up grumpy this morning. The ad is a result of the Church's incoherent attack on a woman's right to birth control through her health insurance. To me, I wonder how the Church can have any political influence at all after letting at least a hundred thousand kids get raped in its churches over the last fifty years.

But it's true, this ad running shows a definite switch in public perception of the Catholic Church, just because the ad ran.

It focuses on the birth control weirdness of the Republican primary race, then says, "Can‘t you see how misplaced your loyalty is after two decades of sex scandals involving preying priests, church complicity, collusion and coverup going all the way to the top?" but not until the very end just above, "There is a more welcoming home for you."


I still think they should not have waited until the very end to mention child rape coverups.

I'm so hard to please... at least they did mention it. And as Jay said, it's earth shattering that the ad ran at all.
