The Eponymous Flower has an interesting piece on Gregor Hoff, who is Pope Francis' new advisor on Judaism. The takeaway points are:
- (Even watered-down) Good Friday prayers are still problematical
- Church has no mission to Jews (that would be news to the Apostles)
The Bear wrote a piece on why this matters, but even a dumb Bear is smart enough to know there are lines that just cannot be crossed. At least not for free. So he presents the Holy Medal of St. Smiley for your contemplation instead.
P.S. you can have the piece for $25. On second thought, the Bear's taking a big risk here, so we'd better make it $100 + NDA.
