Two Steps Back


Would you buy the voice of God from this man? Posted by Hello

Catholics, say hello to your new Pope. He is Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, a rigorously conservative guardian of doctrinal orthodoxy. Since God has chosen this man to be his mouthpiece, God is squaring off against progress and tolerance like never before.

Hint to Catholics: even his native Germans didn’t think he should be Pope.

Here is a quote: “Many blame Ratzinger for decrees from Rome barring Catholic priests from counseling pregnant teens on their options and blocking German Catholics from sharing communion with their Lutheran brethren at a joint gathering in 2003.”

Perhaps Karen’s post about rats was prescient?

Let us pray.
