Set your alarm clocks
By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 13, 2004
On Thursday, December 16, the media will carry stories about Vatican disapproval of American foreign policy.
How do we know?
Because on Thursday, December 16, Cardinal Renato Martino will hold a press conference to introduce the Pope's annual World Day of Peace message.
Maybe Cardinal Martino can get through a press conference without taking a slap at Uncle Sam, but he hasn't shown that ability in the last 18 months.

What about Vatican domestic policy -- that concerning the Bishops. Telling the upper midwestern Bishops led by Flynn from St. Paul that they were doing a great job in handling the abuse crisis is like praising the chemical companies that polluted love canal in New York for their environmental stewardship just because they didn't do it on the open street in daylight.

I guess you don't take wagers, Diogenes, and I couldn't bet against you because we're on the same side. So I'll wager WITH you. I have just put a check in the mail to the Missionaries of Charity. If Cardinal Martino does not attack the United States on Thursday I'll send them another $100.
