They were deaf, but they were not silent. For decades, a group of men who were sexually abused as children by the Rev. Lawrence C. Murphy at a school for the deaf in Wisconsin reported to every type of official they could think of that he was a danger, according to the victims and church documents.

And then the Pope's personal priest has the gaul to equate the outcry and anger over the sexual abuses to the persecution of the Jews. These guys holed up in their pontifical world are incredibly out of touch with reality!

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Attacks on the Catholic Church and Pope Benedict over a sexual abuse scandal are comparable to "collective violence" against Jews, the pontiff's personal preacher told a Vatican Good Friday service.

The sermon by Father Raniero Cantalamessa, a Franciscan whose title is "Preacher of the Pontifical Household", drew sharp criticism from both Jews and victims of sexual abuse by priests.
