Defending the Holy Father

Jack Valero has got into the Guardian's "Comment is free" section with an article: The mob should lay off. The pope is completely innocent. It is interesting that two representatives of the Protest the Pope Coalition told him that he had no right to defend Benedict XVI. I agree with him that this is rather menacing.

He makes a good point in saying that
[...] shouting down the truth doesn't make it go away. I don't defend the pope because I think it is the duty of a good Catholic; I defend him because he is completely innocent of the charges made against him, and because the media has merged with the mob and misreported the facts.
He goes on to answer the principal spurious allegations made against Pope Benedict.
