The Consummate Politician

Fr. Belli, in his homily yesterday, noted Matthew 2:7-8,

Then Herod called the magi secretly and ascertained from them the time of the
star’s appearance. He sent them to Bethlehem and said, “Go and search diligently
for the child. When you have found him, bring me word, that I too may go and do
him homage.”

Yup. Herod campaigned for the Magi’s approval by presenting himself as pro-life, and pro-Christ.

I think we’re all glad those days of political duplicitousness on issues of infant rights are over.
