Molester Protectors Sack Shutterbug

The Archdiocese of Boston, known far and wide for its rampant coddling of child molesting clergy, has fired the freelance photographer who released a photo of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia making an obscene Italian hand gesture inside a cathedral. Hell, even I don't do that sort of thing in cathedrals. It's sorta disrespectful, yeah?

Photographer Peter Smith, who worked for the archdiocese’ newspaper for over a decade, released the photo after Scalia said reporters who witnessed the incident were lying about it. Too bad Smith wasn’t just "fiddling about" or he’d probably still have a job.
