A free floating commentary on culture, politics, economics, and religion based on a passionate commitment to the truth and a desire graciously to refute that which is contrary to it….
"He must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it."
--Titus 1:9, Revised Standard Version

Over in Pennsylvania, Barack Obama was saying of Hillary Clinton, "She seems to have a habit of saying whatever it is that folks want to hear." And Mrs. Clinton was saying of Mr. Obama, "He has sent out mailers, he has run ads, misrepresenting what I have proposed."
Meanwhile, in New York City, at Yankee Stadium, Pope Benedict XVI was saying things such as, "The Gospel teaches us that true freedom, the freedom of the children of God, is found only in the self-surrender which is part of the mystery of love."
In which attribute — love, I mean — the political profession can't exactly be said to abound. The nature of politics, after all, is the capture of power by one group of humans and the denial of that same power to other groups of humans. By force, by the ballot — it all comes ultimately to the same thing, which is that the last thing politics is about is love.
The same goes for a large number of other things you've heard about, such as peace, contentment, joy and fulfillment. Politics isn't about these commodities either. Politics is a wrestling match, with ample components of eye-gouging and head-butting. Whoever ends up sitting on top, by talent or trickery, is the winner.
The timing of the papal visit, coincidental as that timing certainly was, makes a little clearer the debased state of democratic government in the 21st century. As if the almost unendurable length of the presidential campaign, and the squalor of the dialogue, such as it is, hadn't made that plain enough already.
Read it all.
