Slaughtering Christians in the Middle East is fine and dandy

VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Pope Francis warned against what he called a "virus of polarization" and hostility in the world targeting people with different nationalities, races or beliefs, as he led a ceremony Saturday giving the Roman Catholic Church 17 new cardinals from six continents.
The consistory ceremony in St. Peter's Basilica formally inducted the churchmen into the cardinals' ranks.
Francis used his homily to caution the new "princes of the church," as cardinals are sometimes called, to guard against animosity creeping into the church as well, saying "we are not immune from this."

As the Pope watches Christians driven from the Middle East.
