Italian author examines motives of Pope's critics
September 24, 2010
In their new book Attacco a Ratzinger (“Attack on Ratzinger”) two of Italy’s best Vatican-watchers examine the controversies that have arisen during the first five years of the current pontificate. In an interview translated by the Zenit news agency, one of the authors, Andrea Tornielli (the other is Paulo Rodari) speaks about the controversies, and the motives of the Pope’s critics. Among his memorable lines: “Secularized power fears the proclamation of an irreducible truth.”
