AP headline reads, Ratzinger in Charge of Doctrine Crackdowns: New Pope Joseph Ratzinger Was Vatican's Cardinal in Charge of Doctrinal Crackdowns.
A man of deep personal faith who choked up as he delivered the homily at Pope John Paul II's funeral, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger also has alienated some Roman Catholics with his zeal in enforcing church orthodoxy.I know, you didn't know I cared. I don't. At least the news media -- and we bloggers -- can move on to some other topic.
And on those issues, the new Pope Benedict XVI is immovable.
Even as the cardinals who elected him prayed before the conclave, Ratzinger urged them to cling to church tradition and warned about the dangers of abandoning it.
