JPII: Between the Lidless Eye Reactionaries and the Tapioca Left
Critics of the Pope continue to inadvertently persuade me to stick closer to him than ever. Just yesterday on my blog, there was an exciting series of posts from hysterical reactionaries who hate this Pope, clearly regard him as an egomaniac (a charge that is, quite simply, stupid on the face of it) and whose main beef is that he is not acting as totalitarian micromanager of the Church by elbowing all his brother bishops aside and excommunicating everybody to the left of Pat Buchanan. Today I see on Emily Stimpson’s blog that the Tapioca Left, meanwhile, is looking forward to that Great Rosy Dawn when we will finally get a Pope who is not so eager as John Paul is to act as totalitarian micromanager of the Church by elbowing all his brother bishops aside and excommunicate everybody to the left of Pat Buchanan.
When you see a thing condemned for being to round and too square, too fat and too thin, too black and too white, you may be sure that it is very good.
