"I Beg You, Never Fail to Give Me Your Support!"

From ZENIT News Agency--The World Seen from Rome

Of course, it's just the stuffy mutterings of a rigid doctrinaire old man, a Rotweiler of God, the Reasonable will say. A Fool might say that he honestly appeals to his brother cardinals for support, signalling his view on collegiality. He also makes it clear that He intends to continue the work committed by John Paul the Great.

The wonderful thing about the Reasonable is that they often fail to consider the law of unintended consequences. In the case of Pope Benedict XVI, the more they hound him--in unfair overtones a mere hours into his Papacy--the more they will experience a serious backlash. Personally, I can't wait.

Because then the Fools will have a chance to actually tell the Truth. And the people will actually get to listen.
