The execrable sheet of excrement known to some as The Washington Post has chosen to print a column of vomit-on-paper by one Anthony Stevens-Arroyo that comes to bury the Pope by not praising him. Typical bleah, done with all the typical courage of a centurion striking our Lord at the pillar.

But included in the piece is a brand-new flat-out lie without any pretense of foundation, one that slanders our beloved Archbishop Burke. Here is the relevant part word-for-word:

Some prelates acted in ways that constituted cover-ups. Many of them have accepted blame for errors and made public statements of apology. Others, like Cardinal Law, formerly of Boston and Archbishop Burke, formerly of St. Louis, have been “kicked upstairs” to the Vatican. No apologies come directly from them, and one wonders if such prelates might be liable for criminal action in the U.S. for obstruction of justice concerning the way they handled pedophilia cases.

Shame no longer exists, or Stevens-Arroyo would crumble under the weight of it.
