From The Catholic Key Blog, via the NCRegister, we get this statement from Pres. Obama:

“It is the grimmest of ironies that one of the most savage, barbaric acts of evil in history began in one of the most modernized societies of its time, where so many markers of human progress became tools of human depravity: science that can heal, used to kill; education that can enlighten, used to rationalize away basic moral impulses; the bureaucracy that sustains modern life, used as the machinery of mass death, a ruthless, chillingly efficient system where many were responsible for the killing, but few got actual blood on their hands.”

O irony, thou art astounding.

I really don’t know what else to say.

Actually, yes I do:  Lord, open his eyes!

Reading the news is starting to feel more and more like reading a dark, twisted farce.  Only you can’t laugh because you know it’s real.  It’s real and so matter-of-fact that it makes sane people like you feel like you’re going mad.
