Why do they hate us so?

By Domenico Bettinelli, Jr. (articles ) | Mar 18, 2003

Archbishop Martino's comments yesterday about the war ratcheted the rhetoric up another notch. He told Vatican Radio, a war against Iraw "a crime against peace that would cry out for God's vengeance." Now that would be fine if the criminal he was talking about was Saddam, but it's not. It's the US. Where have these guys been? Saddam murders his people and his neighbors with gleeful abandon, but they accuse those who want to stop him of a crime. What is Martino's motivation? Why does this radical pacifist faction in the Vatican defend Saddam with such vigor and condemn the US in the same breath?
