Um, Mirror-Check, Your Holiness

The Pope recently lamented that "Europe has become child-poor" and blamed this on Europeans' being too involved in their own lives and too uninterested in procreation.

After his speech, the Pope returned to his opulent papal mansion, where he will continue to receive advice from trusted advisers who, like him, have for decades refused to have sex with women.

Mother Teresa said the same thing, lived in poverty with two changes of Saris and helped millions of the forgotten poor. Including those whom you probably wouldn't bother to touch. Your point?

Mother Theresa also said the same thing in a country struggling with massive overpopulation. Sincerity and wisdom may not always be the same thing.

My point is that somebody whose entire career and training have removed him from ever being a participant in the realities of romantic love and parenting--and who is advised primarily by similar people--might not be the best adviser on those topics.
