I hope I’m not the only one to find it objectionable that the world is honoring a man who, as the leader of the Catholic church, allowed priests who molested children to not only keep their jobs, but shielded them from prosection by the law.
You can praise the fact that he played a pivotal role in ridding Europe of Communism, that he did much to help the improverished and spread the word of the Lord. I have a hard time reconciling that with his inaction in the last 20-30 years: not doing anything to fix the growing hypocrisy within his own multi-billion dollar “church.” Is it a church or the world’s largest cult?
I guess it’s a good thing I’ll never have to run for political office. ‘Cuz those sentiments sure wouldn’t be popular, eh?
Don’t worry, my next post will feature the “wacky hijinx” you’ve all grown accustomed to.
