"An Appalling Level of Cultural Tone-Deafness and Insensitivity"
Rich Leonardi thinks that
[t]he time has come for Pope Benedict to summon Cardinal Martino to the papal apartments, thank him for his service to Mother Church, and reward him with a quiet parish in the Italian countryside.At the very least, an apology by Cardinal Martino is warranted. As I noted over at Rich's blog:
... it takes an appalling level of cultural tone-deafness and insensitivity for a Cardinal of the Church to invoke Godwin's Law and hurl the concentration camp analogy at a Jewish state.
