Maureen Dowd: "A Nun for Pope"

We need a nun for Pope, writes Maureen Dowd in today's New York Times.

She targets the hypocrisy of not allowing women to be priests and forbidding priests to marry, thus prolonging "the sordid culture of men protecting men who attack children."

"The nuns have historically cleaned up the messes of priests," she says. "And this is a historic mess."
