God forbid the Pope takes a moral position.CBS correspondent Mark Phillips of the pro-war Obama media outlined Pope Francis's recent actions on the Syria issue:
MARK PHILLIPS: "This pope with the common touch has been uncommonly active, lobbying against an attack on Syria. He's used his last two major public appearances in St. Peter's Square to appeal to world leaders – and that primarily means President Obama – not to do it....Pope Francis has followed up his appeal by writing to Vladimir Putin as current president of the G-20.'Armed conflicts create profound divisions and deep wounds, which require many years to heal,' he said. It must have been music to the Russian president's ears."
"The Pope may be taking a moral position, in his mind, but in arguing against military action, he has entered into the world of partisan international politics. He's taken sides."
The outrage is bogus. I think the Catholic Church has been anti-war for several decades.
