Emergency Update: Pope Still Catholic
This just in: the Catholic Church had the audacity to choose a believer as their next Pope …
Steven Taylor over at PoliBlogger points us to a few posts by law professor and practicing Catholic Professor Bainbridge (either he has tenure or isn’t clever enough to come up with a name like Professor Chaos), who mocks the media coverage of the selection of “ultra-conservative” Cardinal Ratzinger as the new Pope.
A few comments: first, if you aren’t Catholic, then perhaps this is none of your business. Second, this is what many Catholics around the globe seek — a new Pope who will continue with tradition and traditional morality in the face of some ill-defined, post-modern, liberal, anything-goes dogma. Third, if you don’t like it, as James pretty much said in a previous post, the Episcopalian church is accepting new members.
After all, it’s the Catholic Church, not some Womyn’s Studies department.
