But mostly people are just mystified by this new hostility from the south. By Rob Gillies. UPCOMING: 900 words, photos by 3:30 p.m.

VATICAN-SEX ABUSE — The author of the bombshell accusation of sex abuse cover-up against Pope Francis denies he acted out of revenge or anger, breaking his silence as his claims continue to divide a Catholic Church already polarized under Francis' reformist agenda. While the Vatican is no stranger to scandal, leaks or plots, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano's j'accuse has weakened a papacy already under fire for Francis' botched handling of scandals in Chile and the U.S., and has intensified a long-simmering ideological battle between right and left for the soul of the Catholic Church.

Mourners poured into the Detroit museum to pay their respects to Aretha Franklin, and several reminisced about their own personal encounters with Franklin during her lifetime.
