I've never been a fan of this Pope for all sorts of extremely justifiable reasons, but this little thing is shocking in its way and goes a long way to making me feel less animus towards him.
...it would still be nice though if he didn't canonize Pius XII (the Holocaust Pope), allowed priests guilty of molestation to stand trial in secular courts, made a definitive statement that the use of condoms are helpful in containing the spread of HIV, stopped referring to stem cell research as 'satanic' and stopped persecuting openly gay priests. But as they say, the Catholic Church is the slowest of all institutions to develop, so I guess we can't ask for progress to happen too soon...

Was banning Indian child labor counterproductive?
