Lebanon, the model of diversity, democracy and peaceful prosperity in the middle east; is being bombed to smithereens by Israel. And Pope “I was NOT Hitler Youth!” Ratzinger says “Bad Israel!”. Iran and Syria are licking their lips. India and China are probably puzzled by all of the hooplah, but for everyone else in the world (Arab, Jew, and Christian), this is looking a lot like the big party we’ve been waiting more than 2,000 years for.
So it’s really incredible to me that some Irish backhoe operator would turn up a previously unknown 1,200 year-old religious manuscript from the cadre of monks who scribed Book of Kells, and that the book would “happen” to be opened to Psalm 83. All the experts say it’s not a hoax. What do you think?
Maybe somebody is trying to remind Benedict about the debt he owes to the Schottenkloster. The Pope may be German, but the religion isn’t.
