The Terrible Self-Righteousness of George Weigel at First Things
9/19/2014

I'm working on this.... It has to do with an article in First Things about the previous pope. Weigel seems to think Benedict was obviously right about claiming a connection between Islam and violence in his Regensburg lecture because of the current beheadings by ISIS. He doesn't even begin to realize that ISIS was created as a response to American military aggression in Iraq.
