One mis-step on Google and I stumbled into a land of paranoid sedevacantist Roman Catholics who argue that Benedict XVI is a liberal, a protestant, and other things which are terms of abuse in their belief system. Okay, I can sympathize with what it would be like to live under a sky of that color. I’m unpersuaded, but I can at least make the imaginative leap of being such a conservative Catholic that you think a Manchurian Cardinal had snuck into the See of Peter. But what cracked me up is that they managed to find the most evil-looking photo of Ratzinger/Benedict I’ve ever seen. Wow! I knew cameras didn’t love the current pope like they did JPII, but this is really a remarkable photo.
