Lucia Tom Scott on Pope Benedict on the couch


I get what Tom Scott is trying to say here.  He's using Pope Benedict as the representative of the Christian world having to deal with constant satire, abuse and misrepresentation of the Christian faith, and so to the "angry protestors", the Pope says, "Harden up ..."

However, in real life, despite some concerns for his safety, Pope Benedict XVI has just returned from a trip to Lebanon that he refused to cancel.  He spoke to all about the need for peace, instead of telling them to get used to the mockery.  Ironic, huh?

The Holy Father is truly a fearless and brave man. Not too many men in the west can attest to those qualities today. Our leadership is limp-wristed (no surprises there). So many men have become emotional and are passing that example on to the younger generation of boys. We think we've become smart but what in fact has happened, is that the spines have gotten weaker.
