Embattled Scottish Cardinal O'Brien apologizes for 'my sexual conduct'

Date: March 4, 2013
Authors: Josh Levs, Michael Pearson and Ben Wedeman
QUOTE: A Scottish cardinal who had earlier challenged allegations of sexual impropriety -- claims that once again shined an international spotlight on alleged sexual abuse involving Roman Catholic clergy -- reversed course Sunday and apologized....Two Italian publications said Benedict, 85, resigned not because of his advanced age but because of a brewing scandal over the blackmail of gay priests by male prostitutes in Rome.
