Amidst ‘summer from hell for Catholic Church,’ a renewed crisis of faith . . .

. . . and a familiar complaint:

“Everybody’s always lambasting the Catholic Church,” complained Elizabeth Rhodes, a former Fox News producer, as she had lunch with her daughter near the campus of Catholic University of America on Thursday.

“They don’t look at people in sports, the ones who are training kids in soccer. There are plenty of other religious communities, Jewish and others, where there’s sexual exploitation.

Any religion, any time, it’s a tragedy, but I hate this focus (on Catholics).”

I’m glad for it. How else get some change?

Also, focus on the church is a backhanded compliment, a recognition, intended or not, of what the church considers its role in the world, a beacon not just another socio-political gadfly.
