Assisi Update

From taking a look at Boniface's latest entry at Unam Sanctam, it seems that Assisi III didn't go off without a hitch. Instead of keeping things neat and clean (as would have been possible), we wind up with a guy chanting a hymn to a pagan deity inside the Basilica. I wonder if this shmoe was asked even asked to apologize. Can you imagine what would happen if the Pope prayed to the Holy Trinity while in a synagogue? Or a mosque? Or if he had praised Christ as Savior of the world at this very meeting?

I'll tell you what would have happened. The world would have come unglued and well-nigh fainted at the temerity of the Pope to have done so. We're Catholic, though. So when somebody does this to us, we're expected to just smile and be pleased at how mutually enriched we are at having paganism proclaimed in our churches.

How revolting.
