On Friday's CBS This Morning, Mark Phillips all but hinted that Pope Francis had "taken sides" with Russia's Vladimir Putin and against President Obama in the international debate over military strikes in Syria. Phillips proposed that the Pope's letter to Putin "must have been music to the Russian president's ears."

The journalist also turned to a "Vatican historian" who once publicly attacked Francis' predecessor, Benedict XVI, as a "dictator", and likened him to Islamists. He also labeled the Pope's upcoming prayer and fasting vigil for peace in Syria a "religious street protest." [audio available here; video below the jump]

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

If the context were Iraq and the president Bush, these people would be singing hosannas to the courage of the Pope in publicly opposing the unilateral militarism of the US government.

The media is in full melt-down mode now that it appears a certainty that the Syria resolution will fail BIG in the House.

Opposing wars is what Popes do.  This same crowd exulted in Pope John Paul II's condemnation of the Iraq war.

They just hate to see their boy humiliated.
