This week, the Vatican announced that Pope Benedict would be visiting Africa in a Good Will Post Easter Pilgramage to promote the Catholic Church. After a week of spin which has seriously undermined the Holy Week Observances, the Vatican seems to think that by reaching out to the African Catholics, it can appear to have rediscovered its humanitarian values and reinvigorate a church which has had serious public relation problems in the wake of the ever growing world wide child sex scandals.
Bill Donahue, the head of the American Catholic League, in an interview, said, “Scandal? What scandal? You rabid hyenas in the press keep talking about pedophilia! What pedophilia? Most of those altar boys were over 13! I mean, who was molesting who here?”
Donahue then added, “ ummm,The Pope doesn’t plan to go to Uganda, does he?”
