New Pope Opposed Kerry in 2004 While Turning Back on Bush's Policies

Watch out American politics! The Catholic Cardinals have just elected a new conservative Pope with a recent history of intervening in US politics, denouncing all candidates who publicly support a woman's right to choose, and going so far as to tell voters they would be "guilty of formal cooperation in evil" if they vote for such a politician.

Denouncing political candidates is one thing, but lets be fair about it. Bush and the majority in the Republican Party support the death penalty and pressed the US into a preventable war in Iraq, both actions opposed by the church. Where was the moral outcry from Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger then? Are Bush supporting Catholics equally guilty of "formal cooperation in evil" by voting for Bush?

I find it questionable for the pillar of God's moral authority here on earth to publicly condemn Kerry for supporting a womans right to choose, while giving Bush and the Republicans a pass on equally important life and death issues. If your mission is to stand up against relativism then do it across the board. Cherry picking one issue is hypocrisy at it's worst. -IFK Editor
