In reference to Nate McCullough's column on Pope Benedict's actions regarding the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church ("Next pope should clean house, Feb. 22, 5A), I submit that he has failed to do his homework. It is easier to spew vitriolic verbiage in the media than to actually research reputable sources and discover the facts.
McCullough claims that he does not care what Pope Benedict thinks or does (something about a gnat's wing in Zimbabwe, how clever); however I believe that he cares very much. Even as he abuses the pope and the pope's leadership, he understands on some level that Pope Benedict, his predecessors and successors have unparalleled influence on the Christian world. To quote a passage from the Holy Bible, preserved solely by Catholic monks for hundreds of years, "Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God."
