LIBERALS SHOCKED SHOCKED! — TO
LEARN BENEDICT XVI IS A CATHOLIC

... in an April 23rd. Times opinion column, Maureen Dowd, the
doyenne of dopey doctrinaire liberalism, excoriated Benedict XVI as a Jurassic arch-conservative who disdains the if it feels good, do it culture and the revolutionary trends toward diversity and cultural openness since the 60s.
Rather, this pope is an absolutist who view(s) the world in stark terms of good and evil, (is) eager to prolong a patriarchal society that prohibits gay marriage and slices up pro-choice U.S. Democratic candidates. (The last is an allusion to then-Cardinal Ratzingers excellent recommendation, in the last election, that U.S. bishops deny communion to politicians who openly condone feticide.)
In others words, like his predecessor, the new pope threatens the slime pit the left has been digging since the late 1960s a brave new world that has given America: 1.3 million abortions a year, one in two marriages ending in divorce, AIDS and soaring rates of other venereal diseases, 100,000 Internet pornography sites, sexually active 14-year-olds, the enshrinement of perversion as a lifestyle and the persecution of those who oppose sexual deviance, the creation of an obscene parody called gay marriage, a secularist inquisition determined to stamp out public manifestations of faith and the first fateful steps in the march to euthanasia
(glimpsed in the starvation death of Terri Schiavo).
Yes, well, another term for “absolutism” is truth, and truth does not require validation from the ignorant. Sorry libs, God is not a liberal.
