03 Jun 2004 Bush Fears the Pope?
Boy, this article is stupid.
It claims President Bush’s “knees may knock” when Bush meets with the Pope, since the Pope didn’t agree with the Iraq war.
How silly. Bush is made of sterner stuff than that.
Plus, if the two of them are getting together to air grievances (VERY unlikely), Bush’s list of grievances could be at least as long as the Pope’s.
However, when an anti-Bush newspaper (the New York Times) accepts an op-ed from a correspondent from another anti-Bush newspaper (the National Catholic Reporter), one can’t expect an article based solely on objective facts.
I visited the National Catholic Reporter‘s website. Saw a lot that seems to disagree with Catholic theology as I understand it.
So let me get this straight. Catholic newspapers don’t follow the Church’s teachings, but President Bush is supposed to?
