Yes, Michael Howard is noted for his anti-war, anti-capitalist views, isn't he?

Repeat after me: Religious conservatism is not the same as political conservatism.

And maybe you should write that out 10 times as well.

What planet are you on? I said there were similarities between Howard and Ratzinger. I did not say they were the same.

Why do I get all the idiots on my blog?

Bill said...

I don't get this.

Are you saying they look the same, or are you saying they are ideologicaly similar?

You've got a real gift for this haven't you?

There's a lot you don't get Bill. I can't spend my life explaining it all to you.

Haha, well I get it, because I had the very same reaction myself. A friend of mine also sayd Ratz makes him think of Richard Perle. Not least because of the eyes and black circles underneath. Brrr... princes of darkness united...

Although I'd say his most striking resemblance is this:

Also, Bill, the pseudo-anti-capitalist pope was the one who just died. This one started by launching a full-on attack on modern secular democracy, so there's a tiny wee bit of a shift to the uber-right there. You missed that, maybe.

Pardon me bb, but I believe you mean modern secularism, rather than modern secular democracy. Bit of a difference. Last I checked, Pope Benedict hasn't called for the installation of a Phalangist dictatorship reigning across the EU quite yet...
