If there’s a special Hell for “yellow journalists” , you’ll be in it.
Frank claims to be a Catholic, yet he hurls anathemas as though he were Pope himself:
Wherefore in the name of God the All-powerful, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, of Blessed Peter, Prince of the Apostles, and of all the saints, in virtue of the power which has been given us of binding and loosing in Heaven and on earth, we deprive(Oliver Willis) himself and all his accomplices and all his abettors of the Communion of the Body and Blood of Our Lord, we separate him from the society of all Christians, we exclude him from the bosom of our Holy Mother the Church in Heaven and on earth, we declare him excommunicated and anathematized and we judge him condemned to eternal fire with Satan and his angels and all the reprobate, so long as he will not burst the fetters of the demon, do penance and satisfy the Church; we deliver him to Satan to mortify his body, that his soul may be saved on the day of judgment.
For someone raised in a democratic republic, Frank doesn’t seem to understand that “preside” is what a President does, over events, good or bad, that occur during his term of office.
OTOH, to say that President Clinton ‘presided’ during the Ruby Ridge shootout and siege in 1992 is wrong, as he hadn’t even been elected to office, let alone occupying the Presidency at that point in time.
Doesn’t it remind you of the political candidate who accused his opponents’ wife of prosthelytizing in public, in front of a Catholic church, no less?
