Turning the golden rule into a golden fork

Pope Benedict XVI has called on Turkey to grant legal recognition to the Catholic Church as a religious organization in Turkey. It seems that B16 has been playing the long game from the start and is now starting to put his pieces in to place. If Turkey agrees, then the win for B16 is clear. If not, the Pope gets a nice hammer to use in any future confrontation related to the Catholic Church’s relationship with Islam. I like how B16, rather than a front on assault, has looked at the internal contradictions of political Islam and is striking at those fault lines. Nicely played.

He has already earned my admiration in this regard.

He is far more formidable than JP.
