Whither Nobel?

John Paul and Alfred Nobel

I’m glad Papa didn’t win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Had he won, we would have been subjected to two equally annoying responses.

1) Pro-war Catholics bitching about how the Pope was wrong about Iraq, and,

2) Pro “culture of death” Catholics bitching about how despite his enlightened views about the war, he’s still a horrible man for promoting chastity, life, morality and other Catholic teachings.

Not to mention what kind of excrement the secular press would have produced.

I just didn’t need to be subjected to that.

Besides, Arafat won a Nobel Peace Prize, how legit could it be?
