Peruvian Reporter Denounces Witch Hunt Against Catholic Church

Peruvian reporter Martha Meier recently published an article in the newspaper El Comercio denouncing the “witch hunt against the Catholic Church” being carried out by the media, which is attempting to smear Pope Benedict XVI over cases of sexual abuse by some members of the clergy.

Meier said those who are seeking to tarnish the Pope's image “want to bring back their outdated ideology.”

After noting that the full force of the law must fall upon abusive priests, Meier asked, “Are those who rend their garments over the abominable acts of pedophilia really concerned about children? Do those who spill gobs of ink really seek the truth? The answer is no.”
