Richard Dawkins Foundation Cites Satire Site: Claims Pope Criminalizes Reporting of Sex Crimes

UPDATE from Jon Sorenson (in the comments of his blog):

I updated the blog. Apparently, the Richard Dawkins Foundation (Official) Facebook page finally removed the original post.

Jon Sorenseon, Catholic Answers:

It would be almost comical, if not for the thousands of people in Dawkins's atheist legion who seem to think it's real news—just more proof of Catholicism's folly. If you see links to this article popping up in social media, be sure to set people straight.

(What Pope Francis really did was update the criminal laws of Vatican City in the area of child abuse. These amendments go into effect begining in September. The Catholic News Service has a great article about it here.)
