I was going to ask this question, but Diogenes already did.
Logic question: How could Bishop Tobin, by writing a private letter in 2007, escalate a public dispute that began in October 2009?
Yes not only can Bishop Tobin time travel, but he must also have other powers. For example his powers include making Rep Kennedy reveal the letter at the proper time and making him keep bring up the dispute.
Funny how the media has framed this “conflict” exactly backwards. Bishop Tobin has been working behind the scenes in regards to Rep. Kennedy and his public statements have always been in response to Rep. Kennedy.
Rep. Kennedy has been masterful at plucking the strings of the media. He knows exactly how to get media attention. Plus when it starts to die down he plays the trump by telling about a Jan 2007 letter he relieved from the Bishop. He knows the so-called Communion wars are tasty bits for the MSM and that they would tie this “interference” into the health care debate. Well played Rep. Kennedy.
