The Pope should be grounded. The problem is deciding who should administer the restriction.
Despite their opulent accommodations, the Vatican digs seem to bore Frankie, who is determined to hop on his plane, hop on his car, and utter utterly useless, and often hilariously silly pronouncements about the state of the world.
In CAR, he said that that his audience should not succumb to fear. What? A family that has been violated by savages who behead and rape its members should not succumb to fear? What alternative emotion would Papa suggest? Amusement? His advice seems as simple minded as Obama’s, and that’s saying a lot.
One wonders what it will take to make the Pope and Obama wise up. It’s no accident that both global “leaders” are currently seeking refuge in the epic diversion of climate change. With intelligent secular and sacred leadership, the wonderful joinder of world leaders in Paris might just conceivably come up with a plan to eradicate the globe from Islamic Terrorism, which threatens much more than a 2 or 3 degree increase in the weather over the next 100 years.
