NPR's "On the Media" covered the Vatican's response to the sex abuse scandal today. Did you catch it by any chance? I didn't hear the whole thing. The part I heard was about how the Vatican just doesn't operate from a public relations-driven standpoint. Used to thinking in terms of centuries rather than minutes, it tends to respond clumsily to these type of things. The commentator also said that the current anti-pope sentiment is rather ironic, given that Pope Benedict is the only pope to meet with victims, the only pope to apologize, and before he became pope was one of the biggest champions of bringing this into the open and removing problem priests.
The story might be here: http://www.onthemedia.org/. I haven't had the chance to listen to hear if that's the story I caught.
I just thought you might be interested.
