View Diary: The Pope Takes a Poke at Paganism (206 comments)

  •  He's talking about the Church's own history (0+ / 0-)

    as much as anything else - or did you miss the palazzo-building bishop he recently canned?  I truly believe that his remarks were positive in message, laudable, and NOT intended to insult, but neither were they all about the non-Catholics, any more than they were about the (pP)agans.

    It was a poor choice of words on the Pope's part, but all the extreme defensiveness and over-spin in defense of the Pope - in evidence throughout these comments sounds to my ears like an abuse of Fred (torturing the messenger), and like Sean Hannity's defense of Bushisms:  "you KNOW what he meant!"

    If you remember how disingenuous those defenses were, you understand how alarming this Fred-bashing party is.

    trying to stay alive 'til I reach 65!
