IS THE HOLY FATHER'S PAPACY A TRAINWRECK?
Many people suggest that many of the presumed flubs of Pope Benedict's papacy are flubs. But others say everything he does is intentional. He knows what he is doing and he certainly knows what he is saying!
I would even go as far as to suggest that everything that the Holy Father has done even in the most controversial of situations has been intended by him to make the points he wishes to make even more explicit.
This Holy Father knows what he is doing and what he is saying! And as Pope, His Holiness does it in a way that has not been seen or experienced before. From Islam, to Judaism to the hermeneutic of reform within continuity, to condoms and sexual abuse, he is like the great teacher he is, provocative and instigating reaction and reflection. He is a great teaching pope the likes we have not seen recently.
