Pope has brass neck of the year

If there was a prize for brass neck of the year, Pope Benedict XVI would surely be a frontrunner.

Now that the heat is on him directly over the cover-ups of the rape of countless numbers of defenceless children, his personal preacher Fr Raniero Cantalamessa throws a red herring into the stew, by stating that the Catholic Church is being persecuted just like the Jews were persecuted in centuries past.

This sounds like a desperate ploy to muddy the waters and divert people's attention.
