   schema:description ""This is a different story. It is the tale of an intrepid reporter who is so intent on covering the Vatican beat better than anyone else that he doesn't notice that one of his best informants is playing around with his wife. When Kaiser blows the whistle on the man, a charming Irish Jesuit named Malachy Martin, Martin persuades Kaiser's clerical friends (including Archbishop T.D. Roberts and John Courtney Murray) to send him to a psychiatric clinic. The story is at once hilarious (Martin was one of the great clerical con men of all time) and sobering. The "clerical error"--The refusal to see what Martin was up to - was as much Kaiser's as that of his clerical friends, who defended their fellow priest simply because he was a member of the club."@en ;
