The missing word in the paper’s obsessive coverage of the pedophile priest scandal.
(Page 3 of 3)
One part of the “crisis” in the Roman Catholic Church is probably over. Abuses have declined since 1980, and the church has stopped letting known homosexuals into the priesthood. Scandals of this particular type won’t be happening in the future, certainly not on the scale they have been. That is good news, though because of its cause — fewer, or no, homosexuals in the priesthood — you may not find it highlighted in the trendy papers.
But we shouldn’t expect that the decline in scandals will persuade the Times to admit it was wrong. When the Times is asked in years to come why the abuse of children declined so precipitously in the Catholic Church, it will be all set with the perfect explanation.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
