The End of History and the Last Pope

The American Spectator : The End of History and the Last Pope


  1. I think they got the Diderot quote wrong, it should be "strangle the last king with the guts of the last priest".

    I think it makes a difference.

    So Tim, what does this do to your outrage over the Fr Murphy trial controversy. Does it make you kind of sad and sick?

    Not only did Bertone, as Ratso's surrogate, tell the diocese to lay off but Brundage, after consultation on the matter with Weakland, coached Weakland on how to instruct him to do it, in the most nefarious way possible, which he then did.

    Culpability all around, from top to bottom.

  3. Reddog: Culpability all round indeed! No, I haven't really changed what I think about this case, at least in the media's assertion that B16 was directly involved. However, it is virtually impossible not to say that this case (like many others) demonstrates that the Church was more concerned about its public image that it was about justice and fidelity. George Weigel used the image of a stable in need of being cleaned out. He (I fear) was more apt in his metaphor than he intended given the horse shit that many in the Church have been shoveling in lieu of truth and justice.

    Fr. Tim
