    This is part of of Romano Prodi’s project to get himself elected President of Italy next year with the help of the Germans etc. The President, unlike the Prime Ministeris selected, not elected. Romano has been propagating Leftist Catholicism (he describes himself as an ‘adult’ catholic which means that you make up your own mind about things) for lo these many years and has been one of the most anti-Benedict Catholic politicians in Italy. Can you please explain why the Catholic Herald is paying the  Tony Blair of Italy? To associate him with Newman is nothing less than insulting.

    Just as slippery as Blair, the war criminal and, like Blair, committed to the marxist EU and its anti-Christian, pro-islamic agenda.

    If you don’t make up your own mind you are guilty of moral abdication.
