Long Live the Pope

And now begins the liberal media attack on yet another institution. Columns in the paper today began with a bashing of the previous Pope for being too much in favor of what his church stood for over the centuries. The new Pope is a holdover, they say, of antiquated ideas. Why should tradition count for anything? Newer is better.
This isn't too much different than wanting judges who are free to think for themselves instead of upholding antiquated documents like the Constitution. The liberal letter writers have the gall to claim that the "right wing is distorting the judcial filibuster". It's all about the good judges that should be appointed. It is not about discrimination against the religious right. No matter that they have previously gone on record as saying that anyone with deeply held religious beliefs is unqualified for public office.
Stand by, shock and awe will follow.

Starting at 78 years of age, one can't help but wonder if Benedict XVI will live very much longer...of course, one never knows.

I was just reading somewhere that liberals want to treat the Bible as a "living document", like they do the U.S. Constitution; interpreting it in whatever way fits their agenda du jour...

I'm already in "shock" at how far we have drifted from the vision of our founding fathers, and the pace at which this country slides into liberal quicksand has me in definite "awe". The liberals hate anything conservative... whether political or religious. Me-thinks Benedict XVI is up for a mud bath.

Indeed he is. Watch the Lame Stream Media to pull up any and all "American Catholics" who are "concerned" about one or more aspects of this "controversial Pope".

anyone with deeply held religious beliefs is unqualified for public office So an atheist or an agnostic is the better and ony choice, eh? I think that anyone who believes in God, regardless of whether we agree with his or her belief, will be more concerned with the morality and justice of their actions than any atheist or agnostic.
