Comments: columns for Easter Eve - part two

People seem shocked by the strong words of the Pope at the Good Friday stations of the cross - 'inane apologia of evil' and so on. A constrast is being drawn between the harshness of these words and the spirit of his first encyclical, God is Love, which most took to be nuanced, positive, even conciliatory. However, the two are of a piece: it seems to me that liberal Catholics, and others, were simply blinded by the latter's talk of love for the encyclical too stands in strong contrast to any views that could be called liberal or progressive. I suggest why in the Canadian online magazine, The Social Edge - http://www.thesocialedge.com/articles/other/index.shtml.
