"Wire services continue to rehash charges that Pope Benedict XVI bears responsibility for sexual abuse by clerics, although the evidence supporting those charges has been thoroughly rebutted. ... Voice of America, the broadcast service supported by US taxpayers, says that Pope Benedict's plan for a restoration Christian culture in Europe is now endangered because of 'some media reports, strongly denied by the Vatican, that Pope Benedict may have been responsible for some of the failings of abusive priests.' The Voice of America story cites the 'media reports' without examining their authenticity." CatholicCulture.org, 8 April 2010. Refers to VOA News, 7 April 2010.
