Catholics and Commies

Strange bedfellows you would think?

Simon Elegant of Time Magazine doesn't think so. In a column about the conflict between Chicomms and the Catholic Church over the former's unauthorized appointment of two bishops, Elegant started with this:

It's not surprising, given their common penchant for intrigue and suspicion, that the rulers of China and the Roman Catholic Church have had a hard time getting along.


I am no Catholic and while the Roman Church has had a checkered history (e.g., Inquisition) I think its safe to say that the Church at its darkest moments could not compare to the butchers of Beijing.
