OReilly attacks the LA Times for lecturing the Pope! Forgets he called John Paul a Saddam Enabler! /

Why does OReilly use the Pope sooh, why? Has he no decency? Has he no shame? Has he.Sorry, I got carried awayBill OReilly attacks the LA Times because they printed an op-ed called Teaching the Pope. In it they ask Pope Benedict XVI to not be influenced by hardliners: He would be wiser to listen to other Catholics, laypeople as well as clergy, who know what mischief would be caused by a decree that would seem to force some Catholic officials to choose between their responsibility to their constituents or the Constitution and their standing in the church denied communion because of their views on abortion. Sounds reasonable, right? Not for BillO.

OReilly: The LA Times writes an editorial lecturing the Pope to stay away from Conservative Catholics hardliners, ummm and give communion to people who are pro-choice. Theyre actually telling the leader of the Catholic Church who to give the sacraments to. I mean, talk about hubris?

OReilly cries, hubris! to the LA Times for their unthinkable position of lecturing the Pope. Its an op-ed that actually would benefit Rudy Giuliani this presidential cycle. John Kerry didnt have that defense. Funny how BillO somehow forgets when HE lectured Pope John Paul because he was against the invasion of Iraq.

But as Ive said before, I believe also that John Paul is naive and detached from reality. If America does not lead an attack on Iraq, once again, Saddam remains in power and is free to use his anthrax and other terrible weapons as he chooses.

So the pope does not seem to be concerned about that or about Saddams behavior in general. Once again, he must know Saddam is a killer. He must know hes oppressed his own people using murder and torture. He must know that. Summing up, Jacques Chirac is our enemy, and the pope, well, I dont know what to think.

Naive and detached from reality. Sounds like hes describing a crazy person. Bill even wrote a piece in the Jewish World Review calling him a Saddam Enabler! Talk about hubris. What a hypocrite, but thats nothing new for The Factor.

1. It's not all right for you lot to lecture a Pope
But Billo is far loftier than us rabble, so when he lectures the Pope about who Jesus would bomb indiscriminately, and what sort of crowd Jesus would sweep with automatic fire, you can be sure that he's coming from the most unassailable position of authority possible. We craven mortals will never understand the subtle workings of the Billo mind.

Not without the application of copious amounts of alcohol, anyway.
