No Better Nor Worse

The opening words of Mr. John L. Allen Jr.'s weekly "All Things Catholic" encourage one to read on:
Perhaps it's a measure of how badly the image of American Catholicism has been tarnished as a result of the sexual abuse crisis that so many bishops, meeting in Baltimore Nov. 12-15, could seem relieved at the news that the church's record on the abuse of minors is actually no better, but also no worse, than anybody else's.
He includes some bishops' comments.
