Some liberals are acting as intelligent as poached eggs in the aftermath of the election of Pope Benedict XVI.
ECUSA Presiding Bishop Frank Griswold somehow used the occasion to push his pluriform theology. Maybe he hasn’t gotten over Cardinal Ratzinger showing himself a friend of orthodox Anglicans in his letter to the first Plano conference .
United “Church of Christ” head John Thomas actually expressed “profound disappointment” in his statement and tore into the new pope.
On a message board I frequent, several posters were expressing their wish for a speedy death of the new pope. Yes, pretty vile stuff.
Much of the wailing and knashing of teeth centers around the new Pope’s history of excellent exposition and dogged defense of Catholic doctrine.
In other words – yes – the Pope is still Catholic. How terrible.
And because of that, liberal heads are exploding everywhere . . . which makes me like the choice of Benedict XVI that much more.
