insensitivity toward the 3rd World

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Apr 20, 2005

Do you have, or can you find, a picture of Pope Benedict XVI, raising his arms on the loggia of St. Peter's, acknowledging the cheers of the crowd?

Look at that picture. Study it carefully. Do you see what I see?

Oh, the horror! Oh, the shame! Oh, the obvious lack of sympathy for the suffering poor people of the underdeveloped countries!

Look at it. Look at it!

Now to be fair, when he got dressed in the morning, Cardinal Ratzinger didn't necessarily know that he would be proclaimed as Successor to Peter before he had a chance to change his clothes. Still.. When was the last time you saw a Prince of the Church not wearing cufflinks!!
