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?
