Stay neutral on Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, Vatican told CBCP, says WikiLeaks | Inquirer News

Here is one of those 'dog bites man' stories that's masquerading as a 'man bites dog' sensation to the detriment of the Catholic Church. 

Which do you think would be more headline worthy? The Vatican tells Bishops of a particular country not to take sides in a political dispute or that they would so command a conference of Bishops? Secularists demand that the Church not have a voice in secular affairs, yet the secular press somehow twists it into a sin when the Church does exactly as they demand.


How does that old line go? 'Just because you're crazy doesn't mean they aren't out to get you!' When the Vatican stands condemned both when it acts (depicted as Church 'interference' or meddling where she doesn't belong) or refrains from acting (as in this WikiLeaks story) it's hard not to believe that she is battling heavy winds in navigating a safe course through today's media environment.  

It's a marvel that she's doing as well as she is... even if she being tossed about like a boat on stormy seas. Seems to me that she's been here before and came through it alright. We simply need believe that her steersman will being her through to port and safe harbor once again no matter how contrary the winds.
