NEW YORK (AP) - Pope Benedict is in New York City, where he is
scheduled to deliver an address to the General Assembly of the
United Nations.
So far on his U.S. trip, Benedict has put America's clergy
sexual abuse scandal front and center. But today, experts expect
him to touch on several broad themes, such as a human rights agenda
that encompasses religious freedom, the sacredness of human life
and the responsibility of first-world nations to aid developing
Benedict's New York visit will also include a visit to ground
zero, though he is not scheduled to speak. He will also celebrate
Mass at Yankee Stadium, visit a synagogue, and meet with leaders of
other Christian denominations.
