In the comments below, “stunted” asks a good question: In addition to all the silent Western political leaders in this affair, where are our religious leaders? Why hasn’t a single Catholic bishop spoken up in defense of the Pope? Where were the prayers for the Holy Father and the safety of all Christians in the face of Islamic outrage yesterday at Mass?
It’s been 5 days and still no official statement from the USCCBureaucracy. Has anyone’s individual bishop spoken out?
Who will stand by Pope Benedict in the face of this outrage? Stalin famously asked how many divisions has the Pope. The answer is none but the angelic legions and hundreds of millions of Christians commissioned at their confirmation.
