Rudy Giuliani turned his feathers up to Cardinal Edward Egan. He backed the Pope into a corner, demanding, like a starving New York City pigeon, that he receive the body of Christ directly form the very hand that bitch slapped him– Pope Benedict the XVI. Giuliani must have known that the Holy Father was the one who didn’t want him at outdoor mass, not Cardinal Egan.
Behind the scenes in New York Catholic politics, the New York Cardinal flew over the bald in two places Mayor, begging that he stay away from the Pope when he was in town. It was the week of the High Jewish holidays. There was already enough happening in town. Guiliani? The pro-choice Catholic mayor? Guilini ignored the agreement between he and his direct father. The former mayor got fed a Pope palmed trisket. It was placed by the holy father on his serpent-like tongue in a matter of seconds. Benedict snatched his hand away quickly, as if the former mayor may bite him like a rabid racoon.
Guillini has always been a pro-choice, outspoken proponent of pro-choice. His church didn’t like it, and didn’t want him showing up on the pitcher’s mound of holy flesh!
No unleavened cracker for you, Mr. Italian loafing mayor! The Cardinal took a dump on your bald spot. He simply asked you to stay away. No devils wanted, but there you were, lapping up the blood of our savior.
Like a rat scurrying behind the cheesy sins of your soul, you showed up, unannounced, for another camera-ready moment. You looked like a bat out of September 11th hell eating the body of Christ, for Christ’s sake!
Now you are trapped inside the politics of the city that you once crucified, never to be elected to a higher spiritual level.
But I forgive you. I think your religious move was bold and fierce! It may just get you elected as a senator of the Holy Land one day.
