Italian secularists, busy opening their public squares to imams, now more than ever want it closed to priests. They fear, reported the European press after the referendum failed, a "victorious Vatican."

"Monica Bellucci interrupted her theatrical career to blast the Church. "What do politicians and priests know about my ovaries?" she said."

I guess her part in The Passion of the Christ was just another job for her. Sad. Lost a good deal of respect from me with this comment.

The liberals of Europe -- those champions of free-ranging Voltairean speech and scourges of fanatical religion -- are dragging journalist and author Oriana Fallaci into court for writing a book critical of militant Islam.

Gotta love those freethinkers. Now why was the Index of Forbidden Books bad?

Pope Benedict XVI's contribution this week to the defeat of an Italian referendum targeting embryos for research and destruction has Europe's secularists in another anti-Catholic tizzy.

When they're in a tizzy, go for the head.

Having grown accustomed to a feckless post-Vatican II Catholic Church, they were surprised and upset that Pope Benedict encouraged Italy's bishops to torpedo the referendum by telling their flock to boycott it.

Suh-weeet. The times, they are a changin'.

Moral Absolutes Ping.

The man has a way with words - biting, bullseye, truthful. Kind of awe inspiring.

Ha - around 1/4 of the people even voted! Heheh. Hmm - anyone know, of the people who did vote, what was the breakdown?

Freepmail me if you want on/off this pinglist.

Good for the Italian people!

Oriana Fallaci: ""Behind this referendum is a project to reinvent man in the laboratory, to transform him into a product to sell like steak or a bomb. Here we return to Nazism," she wrote. "

ORIANA KNOWS HOW TO SAY IT. DOESN'T FEAR ANYBODY. DOESN'T GIVE A DAMN.

This was a bigger win than most Americans realize. Italians vote in numbers far larger than in the U.S.; their typical voter turnout in parliamentary elections is somewhere in the 75% plus range.

So getting less than 30% of Italians to vote in an election isn't a reflection of apathy as some would suggest. Italians vote as a matter of course, not voting was an act of choice.
