"Why should I kiss the Pope's ring?"

He's Lucky The Pope Didn't Deck Him
Father Richtsteig nails it

Fr. Erik Richtsteig over at Orthometer points out how un-Catholic some Catholics have become. Or as Father puts it -- "How The Heck Was This Guy Made A Bishop?"

From CatholicCulture.org;
Irish bishop 'embarassed' by kissing the Pope's ring.

An Irish bishop has caused a stir by saying that he was uncomfortable kissing the Pope's ring when the Irish bishops met with the Pontiff in February. Bishop Bill Murphy of Kerry said he was "rather embarrassed" when other Irish bishops kissed the Pope's ring rather than shaking his hand, but he followed suit. The gesture, he said, is "out of touch with modern thinking."
Unlike having sex with other males?
