Pope Benedict Addresses the UN, Meets with Abuse Victims

Hosted by

Pope Benedict addressed the UN General Assembly today, emphasizing human rights, calling it "the most effective strategy for eliminating inequalities between countries and social groups, and for increasing security." He made no reference to the war in Iraq. Yesterday, for the third straight day of his visit, he addressed the sexual abuse of children by Roman Catholic priests. The Boston Globe, which first reported the scandal, called the Pope's visit with five victims of sex abuse a "historic development." Michael Paulson is part of the Globe's Pulitzer-Prize winning team.
