Brutal indifference

So the Preznit and the Pope had a nice little chat at the White House the other day.  Normally I wouldn’t waste the keystrokes to mention it, but PZ Myers had a great post about it yesterday, and it’s worth reading the whole thing.

There’s an evil tableau for you: the callous torturer stands up with blood on his hands and a lie in his teeth, while the priest draped in gilt reassures him of his righteousness. How often has that scene played out in history, I wonder?

Also, see this screenshot from Gruber.
