Comment of the Day

S. in response to Harry Maryles:

Harry (regarding the Vatican):
"But don't write them off. They have been remarkably positive in their relationships with the Jewish people ever since Vatican II which has lterally turned 2000 years of Church animosity and hatred of Jews on its head."

I see it as scraps. I'm not a dog. The Protestants don't give a damn about the Vatican and didn't need Vatican II to begin to unlearn historical bigotry. It was very nice of the Vatican to visit the second half of the 20th century in the second half of the 20th century. I'm not particularly grateful for it. They haven't put themselves in the black yet.
