What is Benedict up to ? The minority traditionalists in the Catholic Church will have their way just as the religious right in this country has had its way. Along with extreme Muslims and ultra orthodox Jews they are taking us back to the times of religious ignorance and intolerance.
(It was reported on 7/11 that Benedict has also approved a decree re-establishing the old premise that The Roman Catholic Church is the only true church and that salvation will be achieved only thru Catholicism. Now we know what he is up to. He is taking the church back to the Middle Ages. Will a Grand Inquisitor be appointed next?)
