Why does the Catholic Church have to drag the Jews into every sleazy thing they do?

Here's a quick note for Holy Week:

 A quote from story reported by the BBC:  

His (Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury) comments came after Pope Benedict's personal preacher, the Rev Raniero Cantalamessa, compared criticism of the pontiff and Church over child abuse to "collective violence" suffered by the Jews.
Speaking at Good Friday prayers in St Peter's Basilica, attended by the Pope, Father Cantalamessa quoted a Jewish friend as saying the accusations reminded him of the "more shameful aspects of anti-Semitism".

If the Church hierarchy is comparing the criticism they are getting for their institutional, long time, practice of child rape to anti-Semitism then they have put an equivalence of Jewishness with pedophilia. It is helpful to know what they really think about Jews, as if we didn't already suspect the truth.

My Prayer:
May all the institutions of religion come crashing down and may humans experience truth directly from Hashem. Amen. 

An Observation:
The Book of Revelation should have been called the Book of Obfuscation.
