The Drudge Report says Bill Clinton spoke to reporters on Air Force One about the Pope’s “mixed legacy.”
En route to Rome, Clinton told reporters the pope “centralized authority in the papacy again and enforced a very conservative theological doctrine. There will be debates about that. The number of Catholics increased by 250 million on his watch. But the numbers of priests didn’t. He’s like all of us - he may have a mixed legacy.”
Here’s another non-Catholic presuming to tell us the spiritual health of the Church, how she should be run, and what she should be teaching. Regardless of what the real legacy of the Pope will be, Bill Clinton should not be talking about anyone’s legacy. As the first impeached president who will forever be linked in history to Monica Lewinsky, he should just keep quiet and stay out of the spotlight.
