I told my son yesterday that the double standards in the mainstream media are so numerous that it almost gets tedious to keep pointing them out. You can spend all day playing the "what if a Republican had said that?" Or: "what if so-and-so had said that about Muslims?"
This story falls into the second category and highlights one of my big pet peeves, namely, the way in which anti-Catholic bigotry has become acceptable in a way that bigotry of nearly any other variety is not. Just read the whole thing... it's both hilarious and shocking.
