The Guardian of Orthodoxy
The Guardian of Orthodoxy (washingtonpost.com): "[Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI] wrote a letter of advice to U.S. bishops on denying communion to politicians who support abortion rights, which some observers viewed as a slam at Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry.

In another letter to bishops worldwide, he decried a sort of feminism that makes women 'adversaries' of men."
