Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Pope: "Nothing positive" coming out of Iraq

From Breitbart/AP:

In an Easter litany of the world’s suffering, Pope Benedict XVI lamented that “nothing positive” is happening in Iraq and decried the unrest in Afghanistan and bloodshed in Africa and Asia.

“Afghanistan is marked by growing unrest and instability,” Benedict said. “In the Middle East, besides some signs of hope in the dialogue between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, nothing positive comes from Iraq, torn apart by continual slaughter as the civil population flees.”

Nothing positive has happened? The rape rooms are closed, Saddam and his crazy bastard sons are no longer feeding dissidents feet first into wood chippers, family members of dissidents aren’t being dumped into mass graves, establishing a constitution, seeing extraordinarily high percentages of people voting in elections…these are not considered “positive”? I’m not suggesting that life is a bed of roses in Iraq, but to suggest that “nothing positive” has happened there is foolish and grossly naive at best.

With all due respect, Your Holiness, why don’t you stick to things about which you are more knowledgeable? You know, like running interference for pedophile priests in your church or something?
