Vatican Crackdown and Hypocrisy!

"The Vatican has been accused of hypocrisy after the Swiss Guards launched a crackdown on tourists wearing skimpy clothing" — Vatican guards crack down on dress code. And this comes from the "Catholic" Press! At the Vatican, remember, it's always a "crackdown."


"The guards, who wear striped blue and gold uniforms, carry halberds and trace their service to the papacy back to 1506, drew aside men in shorts and women with uncovered shoulders and short skirts to tell them that they were not dressed properly." Readers are probably surprised the halberds weren't used to summarily behead the offenders.

"'Given all the scandals the Church has been involved in, what possible right can it have to be preaching about the morality of sleeveless dresses?' said one woman in her seventies," the article informs us. So, a septuagenarian, perhaps a scantily-clad septuagenarian, doesn't know the meaning of hypocrisy and we get a lede reading, "The Vatican has been accused of hypocrisy..."

Never pass up an opportunity to slam the Vatican, particularly when it is defending traditional standards of decency and manners. That's the media's motto. And much of the Catholic media's motto, too, sad to say.

The Swiss Guards should've locked those people -- especially that septuagenarian -- in the deepest, darkest underground vault of the Vatican for a few hours.

That would've been great.

If this woman is referring to the recent spate of pedophilia scandals, then I presume her solution to the scandals is to normalize pedophilia, based on her touching on the "hypocrisy" of it all.

Often, poeple like these don't think things through.
