The news I’ve been listening to lately sounds like it’s trying to really oversensationlize Pope Benedict’s decision to resign. Yes, it’s the first time this has happened in about six hundred years. That is shocking. Ok. I get it. But we also don’t have the same political climate we did some six hundred years ago. Benedict isn’t choosing kings or hiding illegitimate children. He’s just doing something that makes sense. There’s no conspiracy theory here. It is what it is, and though I’m no longer Catholic nor even a pro-Benedict supporter, let the poor man live in peace. Anybody deserves that right.
