The Vatican's Sympathy for Saddam
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

As if we needed any more evidence of the complete lack of moral credibility of the Catholic Church, there's this:

A top Roman Catholic official has attacked the way Saddam Hussein was treated by his US captors, saying he had been dealt with like an animal.

Cardinal Renato Martino said he had felt pity watching video of "this man destroyed, [the military] looking at his teeth as if he were a beast".

The cardinal, a leading critic of the US-led war in Iraq, said he hoped the capture would not make matters "worse".


Cardinal Martino said on Tuesday that the US "could have spared us these pictures".

"Seeing him like this, a man in his tragedy, despite all the heavy blame he bears, I had a sense of compassion for him," he told reporters.

Yes, oh the horror and humiliation of a routine health exam!

Where exactly is this Cardinal's "sense of compassion" for the children tortured in front of their parents, women raped in front of their families, and men tortured for days on end before being executed and dumped into unmarked graves?
