Andrew Sullivan: Benedict XVI to Unleash "Ferocious Culture War"

Andrew Sullivan, still kicking and screaming and pulling hair over the election of Pope Benedict XVI, warns that
... from the theocon point of view, the glorious achievement of the secular West is as nihilistic and as dangerous as the Nazis. That is Benedict XVI's view. I don't think people have a clue how radical this man is. And how ferocious a culture war he is about to unleash.
Andrew, sweety, just go about your life doing your thing without worrying about what that mean old man in Rome might think, and without expecting the Church to look on approvingly.

This is the first and last time I'm going to post anything from Andrew Sullivan because, quite honestly, I find his banal drama-queen hysterics to be both tiresome and predictable.

I wouldn't refrain from posting him. He is the poster child of the dissident whiners. When things are just too stupid to take seriously they actually become funny. ;)

Well, maybe someday I'll post something else from Andy just to have another opportunity to poke fun at his hysterics. ;)

I apologize, Lord... and please be with all the starving pygmies in New Guinea.

I came in at the last act of "Andrew Sullivan, Idiot Savant" and don't read the New York Times, except on very special occasions. So I had no idea of why many conservatives thought Mr. Sullivan had some kind of wisdom unknown to us mere mortals.

But having once been a bartender, I was struck by how Andrew is hooked like a drunk on the same old tiring obsessions of his. At least Matthew Fox employs some imagination to his psychotic outbursts. And Maureen Dowd is a genuine ditz.

Mr. Sullivan, however, is lost forever in his quest to become the perfect spoon.
