The “No” To Pope Francis From the Chief Rabbi of Rome

Notice the Rabbi wearing his proper hat
The Holy Father missing his!
Just one more place where 
Pope's red priest hat would be
very much in order!
A mark of distinction!

It was a peremptory refusal to “discuss theology” with the Catholic Church, because of Jewish fears of blurring that which distinguishes them from Christians?

The curt “no” was that of the chief rabbi of Rome, Riccardo Di Segni addressing Pope Francis during his visit to the synagogue on Sunday, January 17.

“We do not receive the pope in order to discuss theology. Every system is autonomous, faith is not the object of bartering and political negotiation.”

--Cf. Sandro Magister at "Repubblica"

Speaking of priest hats, did you notice with me Archbishop Gomez' ridiculous hat at the West Coast March for Life 2016. How is the priest hat less dignified that a banal baseball cap for an Archbishop at an official pastoral function? Why not wear the priest cassock and the wide-brimmed priest hat for archbishops outdoors? Perfect for every type of weather, and more similar to the Mexican sombrero than the crass cap. It's simply part of the anti-Catholic sentiment which engulfs us and is clearly seen in the minimalist clerical attire of our hierarchy.

2015 outfit, same as yesterday's, 2016!
