'Scarborough Country'


JOE SCARBOROUGH, HOST: Tonight, cardinals jam into pre-conclave conferences while charges of a sex scandal cover-up reverberate through the Vatican.

Welcome to SCARBOROUGH COUNTRY, no passport required and only common sense allowed.

As millions of pilgrims stream out of the Eternal City this weekend, cardinals get down to the business of preparing to pick the next pope. Meanwhile, protesters shout cover-up outside a Vatican mass held in honor of Pope John Paul II. Inside, Boston‘s disgraced Cardinal Bernard Law is inside leading the service. Is the Vatican rubbing salt in the wounds of sex victims, as protesters claim?

Plus, are the pope and Cardinal Law merely the latest victims of anti-Christian bias? And are conservative Christians unfairly targeted by the mainstream press, like the pope this past weekend? That debate tonight.
