R-9 R.E.S.P.E.C.T. what does it mean to me?

Pope: Tolerance must be based on respect
Pope Benedict XVI, who has been harshly criticized by Muslims for remarks about Islam, said Thursday that true tolerance must be based on respect and the Catholic Church is not trying to forcibly instill its message....."For this reason, the encounter with others must be marked by tolerance and cultural openness," the pope said. "True tolerance always presupposes respect for the other, for man, who was created by God, whose existence was wanted by God."

Church removes Zambia archbishop...Pope Benedict XVI has excommunicated a Zambian archbishop, Emmanuel Milingo, two days after he ordained four married men as bishops.....A Vatican statement said he had been automatically excommunicated under church law because of his actions....
R.E.S.P.E.C.T. what does it mean? Well if your the Pope, it means... "How other people are supposed to treat their fellow human beings... BUT, then the good old "not withstanding" clause of the Golden Rule comes into play here, as he, nor the institution of the Catholic Church has to abide by the same definitions and rules that apply to others...... How ironic is it that he can pompously and piously professes R.E.S.P.E.C.T. for others, yet fails to do the same for those ordained within his very Church.....

He's still trying (KEYWORD - trying) to talk his way out....but he can't... as he's way too deep in denial...
