Newsweek's Nasty Take on Pope Benedict
(Hat tip: Christopher Blosser)
Newsweek's hateful senior editor Lisa Miller writes:
It's not just his unfortunate visage that puts people off [ED.: Not only is Pope Benedict extremely ugly, ...], or his predilection for the more outré aspects of papal fashion (antique chapeaux and ermine-trimmed capes) [ED.: ... and not only does the Pope wear all that weird Catholic stuff, ...], or his decades employed as John Paul's theological enforcer [ED.: ... and not only did he really piss all us liberals off during his years as Grand Inquisitor when he didn't let us use Vatican II as an excuse to do whatever the hell we wanted with Catholic doctrine, ...]. It's that Benedict is a Christian believer first and an intellectual second [ED.: ... but what really gets us is that the Pope really does take all that faith stuff and his role as the leader of the Church seriously, ...], a man who shows little comfort on the global stage with the messiness of human life and politics [ED.: ... and he isn't secular enough when it comes to seeing the world and how it should work in the same way all us enlightened people do.].
