CV USA critiques Documentary

Scot Landry, Catholic Voices USA Director, criticises a recent PBS Frontline documentary 'Secrets of the Vatican' which focuses on scandals in the Church, as “tragically one-sided and short of appropriate context.”

While acknowledging that abuse is a terrible stain upon the Church, he quotes Pope Francis' recent comment that no other institution has done more to address the issue, yet it is the only one attacked. Landry also notes the false accusation against Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York, which has been repeatedly rejected, and suggests that instead of defining the Church by those who have failed to live up to its ideals, a fairer profile would acknowledge its many saints who do live up to them.
