The pope's apology

The pope has apologised to Muslims for some remarks he made during a recent speech.

But I bet you won't catch him apologising to the doctors the Vatican wanted to excommunicate for performing an abortion on an 11-year-old girl who had been raped by her stepfather. A Vatican cardinal said that the abortion was an "abominable crime" (not the rape, but the abortion), and described the doctors as "evildoers."

Religion provides comfort, did you say?
