Another Finger-Crossing Moment for the Pope
Pope Benedict XVI said this:
"You know well that the church wishes to impose nothing on anyone, and that she merely asks to live in freedom," the pope said at Istanbul's Holy Spirit Cathedral, where he was joined by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I, the spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox Christians. [emphasis mine]
That's certainly good to know. From now on, the Vatican will no longer impede efforts here in America to put rationality back into sex-education when it comes to condom and other contraception usage, and that politicians who are pro-choice will no longer be condemned by the pope. I think I'm going to like this new idea of freedom that the pope espouses.
I just wonder how deeply into the next election cycle it will hold before the pope announces he was only kidding, that he had his fingers crossed behind his back...
