Andrew Sullivan continues his one-man crusade against the new Pope, by using speculation and unsourced quotes to draw a direct parallel between then-Cardinal Ratzinger and Cardinal Law. Hey, Andrew, here's a thought - the Pope has been installed, and you won't change that - how about waiting to see what his Papacy is really like before assuming the worst and condemning him beforehand? His public words since assuming the mantle seem to show an awareness of the concerns some have towards him and a determination to avoid the worst fears of his critics. Maybe he'll surprise you, Andrew, but if he does, will you even be open to admitting it?
