After reading an article on the NY Times, I'm lead to believe that many Catholics aren't falling for the whole papel infalibility scheme. It's futher proof that what comes out of the Vatican is often completely out of line with reality. "On the prospects of war with Iraq, almost all of them find themselves in a bind: as conservative Catholics, they follow the pope, but as conservative Americans, they support the president." "Polls have shown that while many American Catholics revere the pope, they disregard church teaching on issues like birth control and the death penalty." "Religious leaders of nearly every denomination and faith have condemned an American attack on Iraq. Only the Southern Baptist Convention and some evangelical and Pentecostal leaders have rallied behind the president. Jewish leaders are deeply split." I personally think the Pope should keep his mouth shut about Iraq. I seriously doubt he knows anything substantial about the situation. Millions of Iraqis are probably wishing he'd shut up as well. Lord knows they can't wait to be liberated from the oppression of an evil dictator. Mark my words, they will be cheering in the streets when Saddaam is gone.
