That inefficient administration in Rome, led by an old man...

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Apr 22, 2013

It seems that I spoke too soon. After I poked fun at the Italian politicians who couldn’t put together a new government, they took the first step, selecting a new president. Well, not really. They called back the old president, persuading him to begin serving a new term at the age of 87.

So now, if a ruling coalition can be hammered out in parliament, we can all go back to criticizing the Catholic Church for having an inefficient method of choosing leaders, and being run by old men.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
