Fr. Thomas Reese, SJ, is such a jerk

“In general, the Vatican loathes giving the appearance that it is bending to pressure,” said the Rev. Tom Reese, a Jesuit political scientist and author of “Inside the Vatican: The Politics and Organization of the Catholic Church.”

Why does this guy get the press he does? One day, it’s “laity rule”; next day it’s “the Vatican kowtows to influential conservatives”; next day it’s “The Vatican loathes giving the appearance that it is bending to pressure.”

Which one is it???

Anyway, I for one am glad Benedict’s taking his time and appointing good bishops (the article is about a petition a bunch of liberals have sent to the Vatican demanding the replacement of their wonderul, post-retirement age Archbishop Alfred Hughes.
