ATTACK ON POPE BENEDICT, IS THE VATICAN ITS OWN WORST ENEMY?
National Catholic Reporter, John Allen, has a rather lengthy review of a book by two Italians on the various dramas of Pope Benedict's papacy. You might get angry at some of the stuff, but I'm afraid the Vatican is its own worst enemy in all of this. I've always thought that John Allen would make a good and credible Vatican spokesman, others would say it would be one more mistake in Pope Benedict's papacy.
The part of the article I like the most concerns Pope Benedict's controversial condom answer on his way to Africa and that condoms made the scourge of AIDS even worse. In a sense the book offers an good defense for the pope's remarks, if only the Holy Father had followed the advice.
