Tired of Double-Talking, Double-Crossing Politicians?

Watch a straight-shooter.

The Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, is arriving today. Coverage begins with his 3:30 arrival, but I’d tune in early.

And skip the stupid news stations. Watch it on EWTN if you can. Then at least you know you won’t have to deal with dissenting priests and such who give the usual talking points about how young people don’t actually believe what the Holy Father teaches us. (And in case you didn’t know, the pope only teaches what Christ teaches us. He doesn’t have personal opinions on things floating around much. When he says, “No contraception, no abortion, love your enemies, pray for the conversion of the Islamic terrorists” and all, he’s giving us the same message as Christ Himself would give. That’s his job.)
