A fellow Canuck, a Mr. Kokoski, has written an opinion piece in the Korea Times about Pope Ratzinger’s visit to the UK. He has many kind words for the Pope and all of them may well be true. However, we can find good points for most people. The way the Pope is unwilling to take responsibility for obstructing justice for children molested by RC clergy is enough of a negative to make all Kokoski’s points irrelevant.
However, even if I wish to stick to the Pope’s UK visit, there is plenty for room for concern. The Pope may be, “…a man rich in spiritual passion, humility, self-denial and love for the cause of God and of man. ” but still be a liar.
