Kmiec Received His Obareward
I don't think this is exactly what he expected

Helmet tip to Former Altar Boy

I'm sure many of you have seen the film A Man for all Seasons. I well remember the scene where after being convicted of treason on the perjured testimony of Richard Rich, St. Thomas was informed that Rich has been promoted to Attorney General for Wales as a reward. The response of St. Thomas is timeless;
Why Richard, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world... but for Wales?Indeed. Now we see exactly how Barack Obama was rewarded his own personal Judas. Not an ambassadorship to The Court of St. James... not to the Republic of Italy... certainly not to The Holy See (as he had his sights set on all the while). What was the payback Kmiec got for his thirty pieces?

Malta.

Hey Dougie -- all you've done against God and His Church... and to millions of slaughtered children, but for Malta?

Allow me to be the first to come out and say it to "The Honorable" Ambassador-Designate Kmiec; you've been played the fool, taken advantage of, bitched out. And speaking of bitched out, this other quote from the film applies, as well; They'll think that somewhere along your pedigree a bitch got over the wall!Even though this was directed at the Duke of Norfolk, this easily applies to Kmiec.



And am I the only one who finds ironically hilarious that Kmiec was also a St. Thomas More Professor at The Law School of Catholic University?

God has a great sense of humor... doesn't He?

Classic! And, sadly, oh so true.

Malta does NOT allow abortions.

Heh.

Indeed, Dan 29, Malta has a state-sponsored religion, and that state-sponsored religion is... the Catholic Church. All laws there adhere to the Church's social teachings. I guess the joke is in Kmiek.

Is there a chance that Malta will refuse him?

No, cavey, you're not. Many of us feel the same way about this modern Richard Rich. It will be interesting to see how long he survives at Malta.

it also shows how little Obama thinks of Malta that he made Kmiec ambassador.

No, not really ironic at all, Cavey. Irony would only apply if Catholic U. was Catholic in the first place.
