    Well I did inadvertently misquote the original.

    But then a slap is a slap.

    He got mighty upset one time at the Temple. I heard he turned over chairs and tables and He probably had a few choice words too.

    She deserved it. She had no right to grab his arm like that and attempt to hold onto it. My question though is where were his security people? There should have been one right close to the Pope, between him and the crowd.

    He doesn't like people outside his circle. He apologized & rightfully so.

    He cleared the temple, His Father's house. of the crooks twice. once at the beginning of his ministry and once at the end. He never turned anyone who was needy away,

    But you, presumably, don't claim to be "as God on earth."

    ????? & she’s not a car or any other inanimate object to be analogized. I disagree with you on this one. He was angry when he stepped away. His apology was not an apology. Leftists are never truly sorry. When they ‘apologize’ they use it as a forum to lecture on something else. Hollow, & shallow......for the feeble followers of their word to once again fawn over the deep thoughts that have been imparted to them. I’m not buying. If I were Catholic I would be VERY unhappy with this leader.

    When you say "Slapped a woman" 99% of people think slap in face. Slapping in hand is not nearly as serious. She should not have grabbed his arm. He should not have slapped her hand. Both were wrong.

    An accurate "He gave her a slap on the wrist" just doesn't have the same oomph, does it?, for Church-hostile media types, and their dupes.

    To all the apologists & excuse makers about why she was wrong, she who never thought she would be so blessed as to be that close to the Pope, made the gross error of trying to touch him, & shouldn’t he expect such adulation being that close to the masses..........He gets let off the hook quickly, but what if Trump had done the same thing to a woman admirer on a fenced off line which he was greeting?! A slap is a slap. Do you approve of slapping an adult for correction in public settings? How about your wife, or your daughter? Ludicrous.

    I’m the last guy is going to stick up for the pope but he’s not in the wrong here and it’s not really even a slap. My wife does worse to me all the time.

    yeah, both of them were in the wrong and the Pope did apologize. He's supposed to be "better than that" though:

    she was rough and I think the reaction was an impulse
