While Chris Cuomo worried out loud on Friday about The New York Times questioning an excessive focus on the religion inspiring ISIS when they resort to rape, the same concern about stereotypes didn’t come up pseudo-Catholic Cuomo for the Catholic-bashing front of The Washington Post. In “Pope urged to address clergy sex abuse in visit,” religion correspondent Michelle Boorstein repeats the never-ending stream of allegations that the Vatican has never done enough to appease critics and accusers and their trial lawyers on commission.
It’s quite a contrast with the Post’s Weekend section, where film critic Ann Hornaday is praising the new movie Diary of a Teenage Girl (four stars out of four stars!), where a 15-year-old girl is seduced by a 35-year-old “man-child” who’s dating her mother. Online the headline called it "funny, forthright, and daringly frank." Since there’s no organized global religion involved, the child abuser “isn’t so much the villain of this piece as one more misguided seeker whom [filmmaker Marielle] Heller treats with more amused compassion than disdain.”
