Cardinal Sin, RIP

While I was out I missed the passing of Cardinal Jaime Sin. This is a pretty good obit, although it emphasizes his political achievements and not his outspoken defense of Christianity and the culture of life. Many moons ago when I worked as a lobbyist, one of the British bishops had to resign when it was revealed he'd sired a child. It was reported that he went to missions in the Philippines to atone, and wound up in the Cardinal's confessional where he knelt and said, "Bless me, Sin, for I have fathered."
Forgive me. My old boss used to love that joke.
