VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Benedict's rehabilitation of a Holocaust-denying bishop shows flaws in his governing style and the bishop's apology is not enough to heal the wound, progressive Catholics and Jewish leaders say...
"This and other controversies point to a fatal systemic flaw in the Benedict papacy that is destroying his effectiveness as pope: He does not consult experts who might challenge his views and inclinations," said Father Tom Reese, senior fellow at the Woodstock Theological Centre at Georgetown University.
No way! An arrogant, hard-right conservative who refuses to consult the reality outside of his hermetically-sealed bubble? Who would have guessed?
