Pope’s Apology Tour
President Obama has been severely criticized for travelling around the world, kind of apologizing for his country not always having lived up to the exceptional image of ourselves we have come to adore.
And now, lo and behold, Pope Francis is being criticized for travelling around the world apologizing for the evils committed by Catholics, in the name of God, from enslaving the Native Americans way back when, to making innocent little alter boys into sex slaves for the enjoyment of the clergy.
Are we on a slippery apology slope here? Who knows, – the next thing might be the NRA apologizing for having worked so hard for the freedom for anyone to carry and shoot freely, or Congressional Republicans apologizing for having sabotaged the presidency of Obama, with immeasurable harm to the country, as well as the rest of the world.
Or, perhaps the slope isn’t slippery enough. Not yet, – anyway.
