It heartens me that the bright, informed women that I respect and enjoy reading are weighing in on the Catholic sex abuse scandal. Read India Knight and Maureen Dowd. The Maharishi is disgusted with the whole thing. "Baby love," he says to me this morning while delivering my cup of tea "I don't really see the argument." I know enough not to draw him in on the subject of the Catholic church, a church he has been steeped in for his whole life (and the church that gave many members of his family much comfort). I find myself stumped too. Try explaining the notion of infallibility to an incredulous fifteen year old. But today is Palm Sunday. Hosanna and all that.
