Sometimes the headline says it all

Archbishop of Westminster attacks atheism but says nothing on child abuse

Hmm. Well it tells ME that The Times newspaper can't pass up ANY opportunity to slag off the Catholic Church and rub their nose in the scandal of child abuse.

I don't find it surprising or out of order that a church man should be negative about atheism. That seems about right to me.
Nor do I find it surprising when atheists are negative about 'faith'.
I think it would be a pretty crappy argument to bring up the fact that atheists have been known to abuse children.

But that's just how that headline speaks to me. Depends on your perspective I guess.
