OK, to prove we’re not completely Godless here at the WOW Report, we’ll allow you to sample the literary wares of someone who defends the 265th pope, Benedict XVI, who is already earning such handles as “The Enforcer,” “The Hammer,” and “Grand Inquisitor.” Licia Corbella at the Calgary Sun thinks he’s swell.
As the belief in absolutes diminishes, our society stumbles. People increasingly think that you determine what is right by what FEELS good. Only problem is, for Clifford Olson, that means raping children and driving nails into their skulls. For others, it’s shooting drugs into their veins, and for others its stealing your car. As Calgary’s Catholic Bishop Fred Henry said yesterday, Pope Benedict XVI “is a humble and brilliant man who defends the truth and doesn’t bend with the trends.”
So one can assume he won’t be wearing Ocean Pacific corduroy shorts anytime soon.
