Predictive powers

By Cheshire (articles ) | Apr 09, 2003

Watching news films of the Iraqi children being liberated from prison, and scenes of Saddam's torture chambers, one recalls war predictions of some of our prelates:

  • Archbishop Tauran: "a disaster"
  • Archbishop Martino: "there cannot be a just war"
  • Cardinal Etchegaray: "World War III"
  • Bishop Botean: "a matter of mortal sin"
  • Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops: "no justification"
  • Cardinal Maradiaga: "pretext for reconstruction"
  • and L'Osservatore Romano: "indifferent cruelty"
  • I suppose these worthy voices now are offering public apologies, but I cannot hear them because of the cheering Iraqis celebrating in the streets.

    An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
