Yeah, those were the days, weren't they?


Pope Ratzo the First brings back some fond memories among the faithful:

Indigenous leaders in Brazil have reacted angrily to Pope Benedict's comments that their predecessors had willingly converted to Christianity.

One Amazon Indian leader, Jecinaldo Satere Mawe, said the Pope's remarks had been arrogant and disrespectful.

Pope Benedict XVI told Latin American bishops in Brazil that American Indians had been "silently longing" to become Christians 500 years ago.

Not to be outdone, Canadian aboriginals immediately protested that they remember how unsatisfying life was like before residential schools, while native Americans could only wax nostalgic about the old days and how empty their lives felt before the arrival of smallpox-infected blankets.

CC may be on vacation but Kathy is still on guard, reminding Lefties everywhere that that Falwell dude had your number: “Lefties! You’re even wrong about the stuff you’re right about.” http://shaidle.blogmatrix.com/:entry:shaidle-2007-05-17-0000/ (Sorry, I’ve never figured out how to imbed/)

The particular point Kathy makes is that the funny thing is that

Falwell turned out to be absolutely correct in his own weird way: leftists are falling all over each other to side with radical Muslims now. The Left had nothing to do with September 11, 2001 -- but from September 12/01 to today, they've been trying to make up for THAT ball drop, big time.

I know CC would have something snarky to say about this, but . . . .

Seer: Never mind the embedding, put some quotation marks in there before people start thinking that you are a crazy bigot like Shaidle.

Wow... when is it official to declare this pope "legally insane?" Or was that line already crossed?

Oh, bravo, bravo, Natzinger. *clap clap clap*

I swear, he'll be undoing Vatican II soon. And my Latin is really rusty.

Yeesh. It's like nothing's happened since the Counter-Reformation. That's appalling.

Call the military. No, wait, that's "embed".
