As I was reflecting on Pope Benedict, the whole episode last year over denial of Communion to pro-abortion politicians came to mind and how Cardinal McCarrick said Cardinal Ratzinger’s letter to him said one thing and then when we saw the actual text, it said something completely different.

Thus, kudos to Diogenes for being the first one out of the gate with this one:
“... when Pope Benedict XVI issues his first encyclical letter, should we ask to see the whole text, or just rely on Cardinal McCarrick to give us a quick summary?”

I wonder how that whole issue is going to end up under this Pope? Wouldn’t want to be a pro-abortion Catholic politician in the next round of elections.
