The Catholic Church makes a big target for those who raise themselves up as moral agents of truth right now. The cartoon strips aren't free of this kind of posturing, as was evident in my morning paper.
Some think it is critical commentary and the Church deserves it. I have never thought the Church was above criticism, esp. where evil happens. But, where is the outrage over the Boy Scouts, the public school system, etc. which has an even bigger problem?
