The Voice Of Reason...?

This has got to be one of the most rational of newspaper reports from the secular press, that I've read in a long time. I certainly appreciated the understatement in the first two paragraphs:

"When Pope Benedict XVI touches down in Edinburgh next Thursday at the start of a four-day state visit to Britain, he may be forgiven for thinking he is not particularly welcome.

"The Devil himself could hardly have got a worse press."

Stephen Glover describes himself as an Anglican who retains a few traces of irrational anti-Catholicism. At least he recognises his own bias, but his article is one of the most evenly balanced I've encountered since the announcement of the Holy Father's State Visit to Britain.

Do go and read the rest of it.

It's probably because few of even the hardcore protesters/bullies realise what the devil is or the very real role he plays. They don't accept that they are behaving devilishly by treating the Holy Father thus. CS Lewis said that the greatest trick of the devil is to fool people into thinking that he doesn't exist, and then wreak havoc in disguise. More truer now in 2010, than ever.
