The Silence Is Deafening: Conservative Catholics Are Less Vocal About Lebanon Now --
When Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Vatican Secretary of State, condemned both Hezbollah terrorist actions and Israel's reprisals that harmed civilians, conservative Catholic bloggers who jumped quickly on the back of Sodano as a "loony liberal." Once Pope Benedict backed a G-8 statement on Lebanon, condemned both terrorist acts and military reprisals, and called for a cease-fire, conservative Catholic bloggers have been muted. I haven't read any polemics about "Islamofascists" recently. I wonder why.
