@Laura Silver, the link to Berlusconi seems to be broken. Just FYI.

@Laura, bravissima! Che bene!

I've heard that Berlusconi is nuts, and this might be proof. After all, it's not as though he's a new convert who grew up in a culture which had polygamy before the missionaries arrived. He's the Italian prime minister, for crying out loud. You can't throw out a rock out of the Parliament building window without hitting a Catholic Church, a parked scooter, or a Chinese restaurant --sometimes with the same rock. I've been to Rome; I know of what I speak. This isn't news to him.

What I thought was interesting was that the bishop was ready to let it slide if Berlusconi didn't make it into a public scene. Um, Your Excellency, with all due respect, remember that those things whispered in closets shall be shouted from rooftops (cf. Luke 12:3). And Christ said that before the invention of the Internet.
