Pope barking up the wrong tree with condemnation of ‘childlike’ potentates
The reason war is always with us is not an endless supply of evil potentates. It is an endless supply of human beings, most of whom don’t even have evil in their hearts.
On Nov. 4, Pope Francis condemned the 'childlike' approach of a 'few potentates' to bring war. It’s Francis’s job to say things like that, and he does it with sincerity and grace, even if he is wrong, writes Gwynne Dyer. Photograph courtesy of Flicker/Catholic Church in England and Wales
