Another 'Push' from the King of the South

Tom Kirkpatrick sends this article with comment. "Just another in a series of recent opinion pieces that demonstrate the fundamental changes going on in Europe--the tension between the secularists/rising Muslim force and the Scarlet woman -- it seems likely that a strong and vigorous and miracle-working successor to John Paul II will have to come on the scene to lead Europeans to counter the "push" from the south".
