The Audacity of Pope
The pope seems to be cutting a pretty reactionary path. We were told this pope would be conservative, but his choices, especially recently, are fairly breath-taking. He recently de-excommunicated a bishop who denied the Holocaust (said bishop has issued one a non-apology apology but has not retracted his odious views).
Coming on the heals of this decision, the pope has elevated a ultra-conservative priest to bishop-hood. Gehard Maria Wagner has accused the Harry Potter books of spreading satanism, and believes Hurricane Katrina was gods vengeance on New Orleans for tolerating sexual licentiousness, homosexuality and abortion.
