(Newser) Maureen Dowd has been nipping at Pope Benedict's heels, but you know you're in trouble when Jon Stewart takes aim at you. On last night's Daily Show, Stewart blasted the pontiff's defiance over his handling of sex abuse cases. "If any other organization had done anything close to what the Church is being accused of, they'd be done!" he said in a segment called "Pope Opera."

The Church is less contrite than Domino's, Stewart says. "Look how sorry Domino's was just for their shitty pizza!" he jokes. "They had a bad sauce recipe, (and) they've been out there nonstop. ‘Oh, we're so sorry. Here, have some Crazy Bread!'

if priests are getting popped for this overwhelming urge to suck cack, and the average % of homers is about 10%...does this mean we have a silent majority of girls who are also being molested...and are just so darn happy about it they never complain? or is the catholic church the main supplier of that 10% and none of them like girls? it just seems strange to me that no men of the cloth ever go after any wadge. and chicks love men in uniform.

lets face it...religious people are fucked in the head. and the higher up in the hierarchy you go, the more fucked up they are. of course, i knew the first 10 minutes into my first and only catholic sermon that these people are deranged.

I am trying to figure this one out: what is so difficult about saying 'Mia culpa'? The only reason most of us avoid throwing Sam's entire laundry list of shit at the church because it mostly seems like water under the bridge, but only as long as they portray themselves as a semi-modern, harmless entity. I mean, Jon and co. even missed some of the real doozies of history, like the slaughter and cannibalism of an entire city during one of the Crusades, or the mass burning of Jews during the Black Death. If the church wants to come through this at all, they are going to need to change tact.
