It seems Pope Francis needs to brush up on his Tertullian!

It has been reported (in The ChristLast Media, I must note) that the current Pope does not like the phrase "lead us not into temptation...

"Let no freedom be allowed to novelty, because it is not fitting that any addition should be made to antiquity. Let not the clear faith and belief of our forefathers be fouled by any muddy admixture." -- Pope Sixtus III

John Bolton? Yes!

Mr. Bolton would be an excellent president because he knows the world is a mess and his job would be to keep the mess at bay.

John Bolton slams Jon Huntsman, keeps option open for presidential run

Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton may be sitting out the first round of presidential debates and long hours driving across Iowa, but he's still not ruling out a possible run for the White House in 2012.

In a far-ranging interview with National Review, Bolton outlined his campaign strategy and even took a shot from the sidelines at Jon Huntsman, who left his post in the Obama administration as the nation's ambassador to China to run against his former boss.

Bolton suggested that Huntsman should have rejected Obama's invitation to serve in China.

"There is no patriotic obligation to help advance the career of a politician who is otherwise pursuing interests that are fundamentally antithetical to your values. That's not the call of patriotism," Bolton told NRO's Robert Costa. "I don't understand it. This is not like World War II, when we are facing an existential threat to the country as a whole, and you do put partisanship aside."

Foreign policy is one area where Bolton, now a senior fellow at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, arguably has an advantage over other candidates currently in the field. In addition to his UN post, he has worked under three Republican administrations and served in the State Department under both Bush presidencies.

In a separate interview last week, Bolton said that none of the candidates has shown the level of interest a president should in international affairs.

"I don't see any of the Republicans in the race now who have made foreign policy a priority," he said.

It is for that reason that Bolton, who has not set up an exploratory committee or even a PAC, said he's still keeping his options open.

"Clearly the field is not fixed," he said.

Bolton has said that either way, he'll announce his decision by Labor Day.

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
