Throwing in some irreverent humor to break the seriousness and remind everyone that Easter was always more about bunnies and sex goddesses that it ever was about Jesus. Sure, Easter is about birth, and maybe even rebirth, since it's in the spring. Yeah, rebirth of vice that nobody gave up for Lent anyway. 40 days of guilt over succumbing to temptation is half of the religion, I guess, and Easter is just another carrot on a stick for an ass.

Part two continues from last week. But for now, read this:
The anti-gay Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights is going on the attack against "those who are distorting the truth about priestly sexual abuse."
The group bought an expensive full-page ad in The New York Times Monday that places the blames for the church's scandals on "homosexuality, not pedophilia."
And perhaps most shockingly, it also claimed that some children were active participants in the abuse.
"The refrain that child rape is a reality in the Church is twice wrong: let’s get it straight -- they weren’t children and they weren’t raped," self-appointed Catholic League president Bill Donohue wrote in the ad.
"We know from the John Jay study that most of the victims have been adolescents, and that the most common abuse has been inappropriate touching (inexcusable though this is, it is not rape)," he added, referencing a 2004 study by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, which was funded by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
"The Boston Globe correctly said of the John Jay report that 'more than three-quarters of the victims were post pubescent, meaning the abuse did not meet the clinical definition of pedophilia.' In other words, the issue is homosexuality, not pedophilia," Donohue wrote.
"What accounts for the relentless attacks on the Church?" he asked in conclusion. "Let's face it: if its teachings were pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage and pro-women clergy, the dogs would have been called off years ago."
Marianne Duddy-Burke, executive director of DignityUSA, a pro-gay Catholic group, told The Advocate that there were "so many problems with what Mr. Donohue is saying."
She pointed out that Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests (SNAP) figures showed that half of those abused are female.
"He avoids what is in many ways the larger sin -- the cover-up and enabling of abuse," she added.

It's hard to introduce such a grave subject to a generally light-hearted podcast, but here I am willing to try. This is another BBC documentary, this time exposing the official coverup by the Vatican of sex-abuse by priests and others with trusted positions with the Church (big "C").
