Elephant in the Vatican

In an article on how the Pope Benedict claims that the "world ignores Christians in Mideast," the Associated Press drops the ball in several places:
  1. Doesn't note the sensation that this is an attempt to distract about one injustice by pointing out another.
  2. Didn't make the link that maybe the Vatican shares some blame in not handling its own problems.
  3. It also glosses over the terrible possibility that people completely unrelated to the failures of the biggest Christian church may be suffering for it.
Note that it may also be true that the Vatican just does things from time to time and the press should report on that.
