The Pope and Iraq: Huh?
letter to the editor in the New York Times states: "Those on the left will admire his opposition to the death penalty and the war in Iraq as well as his strong commitment to interfaith dialogue."
Richard Cohen in his column in The Washington Post writes: "On the war in Iraq, he was indistinguishable from many liberals here. He simply opposed it."
An Opinion piece in The San Francisco Chronicle by the president of San Francisco University states: "He spoke with equal vigor in condemning abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment and both Iraq wars."
I have just one little question: Where are the quotes that prove the Pope opposed or condemned the war in Iraq?
I can't find them. Yes, he warned of the necessity of diplomacy and war being a last option. But I can't find a single statement of opposition.
Are we seeing yet another rewrite of history?
