Topic of the Week:

Had I known that religion would come thus to the forefront . . .

Tina used to ask, must we discuss religion. And I always said yes, because we must. But had I known that the Pope would die and that Cardinal Ratzinger would become Pope Benedict XVI, I think I would have skipped the idea all together. That's because Pope Benedict is the one who is most concerned about keeping Europe, not the world, but Europe, Catholic. He is also concerned about doctrinal orthodoxy, that is, that you should believe what he, the Pope, says you should believe. For me and for Pat this is a disaster, because we are radically left compared to the New Pope's philosophy of protecting morality from secularism in Europe, and in his absolute rejection of liberation theology in South America, and in his relatively more gentle reactions to those like Archbishop Milingo of Zambia, who got himself married by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon in a mass marriage ceremony.
