McCarrick to Lebanon
by

He visits Lebanon to mourn the humanitarian situation, but claims not to make any political judgments. As admirable as that humble instinct is, I suspect that stepping into the fray at all is necessarily political, especially when I see this paragraph:

In an Aug. 10 telephone interview from Beirut, the cardinal said his visit was meant to be a sign of solidarity with the suffering people of Lebanon, the same kind of visit he has made in the past to Israel in the wake of terrorist attacks.

So the victims are the same? Does that mean the Israelis are morally equivalent to terrorists? McCarrick’s presence seems to play into Hezbollah’s PR campaign. If he is only there to call attention to the civilian suffering (already VERY well reported) and say “the world must do something” (that’s really his quote, believe it or not), then the most he appears to do is call attention to himself.

McCarrick shows no indication of retiring quietly into the night. Does he aspire to be a clerical Bono or Bill Clinton?
