I disagree with the word "new". Hasn't it always been the case?. There is a saying, "If you fail to learn from history, you are bound to repeat it." Have we learned nothing from the Spanish Inquisition, the Salem witch-hunt, Savronola, the crusades, etc. etc.?
And incidentally, how come the Pope is getting such a great reception in the US? How come Bush gave him such a special reception? When he was just plain old Cardinal Ratzinger, wasn't he in charge of moving the priests that were suspected of sexual abuse? I guess Boston won't be on his tour itinery.
