Quote of the day

Today’s quote of the day — which perhaps should be quote of the century — comes from Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi who explained to the press today that the pope did not visit with the Ladies in White or any other Cuban dissidents out of respect for the Castro dictatorship:

“When the pope comes to a country … he has to take into account all the requests and suggestions of the authorities. It is the authorities who invited the Holy Father to the country.’’

  1. Nailed it, George…

    The saddest part is that these cowards undermine the good works that regular priests and nuns do on a daily basis around the world.

  2. The Pope is a disgusting, fraudulent, coward who deserves nothing but our contempt. He isn’t holier than a cockroach and if Jesus were in Havana he would have made him run off a cliff like a posessed pig!

    I’m so glad my family left the Catholic church and I know that my great-grandparents buried outside Santa Clara are spinning and spitting in their graves right now.

  3. Translation: “Look, get real. Castro, Inc. wanted this visit, and not for “pastoral” reasons. It only allowed it like it allows foreign media to work in Cuba: on the regime’s terms, or else. Gotta play along to play at all. The pope accepted the regime’s terms, and the pope is an honorable man. Now shut up and grow up.”
