From Kathy Shaidle at five feet of fury:
The reason the MSM (and ordinary people) are ignorning the "Bishops smack down Nancy Pelosi on abortion" story is:
a) they are, as you [Hugh Hewitt] said on air, notoriously tone deaf about religious issues,
b) they agree with Pelosi on abortion anyhow; but most importantly:
c) they find it rich -- as I do -- that cardinals and archibishops can manage to shift themselves so rapidly when the issue is abortion, but kept their mouths shut for twenty years when children were being molested by their brethren.
The American Catholic hierarchy has NO moral authority now and may never recover it.
Pelosi is wrong and you and the cardinals are right.
It. Doesn't. Matter.
No one takes the American Catholic hierarchy seriously any longer, given their abdication of authority over the greatest in-house controversy in its history. . .
