President Bush, when asked by EWTN anchor Raymond Arroyo: “When you look into Benedict XVI's eyes, what do you see?”


Funny, when I see Benedict XVI, I see a brilliant and formidable theologian (Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger), who now presides over a church which officially denies the gospel of justification sola fide

I also see a man who has rather odd taste in shoes.  Click here: Riddleblog - The Latest Post - A Fashion Statement

Bush didn't see too clearly looking into Putin's eyes either. Maybe there is a better way to make conclusions about people??

I thought the same thing, when I saw the Pope's
cute, red barbie doll shoes!

Good word on the denial of sola fide.

And don't forget his faux-hawk when the wind catches his hair just right.

He wore those red ones just in case the visit goes badly... He will just tap them together 3X and say, "There's no place like Rome!"

It must be hard being so intuition-challenged: first Jesus is your most favoritest philosopher, then you foresee rose-petal parades in the desert, then you think you see God in a man's eyes. (Well, maybe we can give some rope on that last one, what with the imago dei and all. After all, if pro-life values-voters can misconstrue Psalm 139 Dubya can certainly claim to see God in Papa's eyes.)

I guess it's all in a day's work for a man duped by faith-based initiatives, mistaking it for being more Christian than Republican when it's really the other way around.

A representative from the CRCNA is going to take part in an "ecumenical" prayer service with Papa Ben. You can read about it here:

I saw the red shoes on good Morning America this AM; are they that color to commmemorate the blood of thousands of Protestant martyrs killed by Benedict's forebears? IMHO, it is the solemn duty of every Reformed, Lutheran, and Anglican Protestant to execrate the papacy!

When I look into his eyes, I see dhimmitude.

Wait, there's more...

(Reuters) - Pope Benedict tempered his praise for American religious tolerance on Wednesday with a warning that U.S. society can quietly undermine Catholicism by reducing all faiths to a lowest common denominator.

Pastor Kim, do you think he's read your essay on the "church of the lowest common denominator"?

As you or may not know, it is also Disabilities Week in the CRC. The ironic comments seem endless to me.

Saw God in his eyes?

Sounds so nice doesn't it?

When John turned around he saw one whose eyes were a fiery red.... hummm

Er... I meant "Highest" common denominator!

The problem seems to be the Pope hasn't read it.

I am not a "pro-life values-voter" (although pro life) but I am not sure what you mean by your statement that they misconstrue Psalm 139. Are you suggesting that we are not knit together in the womb, according to His plan conceived before the foundation of the world and for His purposes?
