Today’s read is from R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr, founder and editor in chief of The American Spectator.
Here’s an excerpt:
“…he was making a political statement against capitalism and against America, two of his favorite bugaboos. Yet, is it ever all right for the pope to lie? I shall leave that matter to the theologians. I do wonder, though, who is hearing the pope’s confession these days?
“He is obviously an economic illiterate, but what’s worse is he has strayed far from his supposed area of expertise — namely, spirituality and morality. He is rapidly becoming a typical blowhard politician. Perhaps he’s angling for a seat at the United Nations. The priorities of his papacy would put him in the running for secretary-general.”
