Once again, the Associated Press demonstrates its nonpareil grasp of detail with its reportage on Msgr. Luiz Marques Barbosa, a Brazilian priest caught on video molesting young men and now facing criminal charges.
(By the way, Bp. Valerio Breda of Penedo has suspended Barbosa and two other priests of the diocese; the diocese is cooperating with the police as well as conducting its own investigation. Doubtless the New York Times will still wonder why Cardinal Ratzinger didn't defrock Barbosa in 1985. (If you don't get why that remark is sarcastic, let me know and I'll tell you.))
