Dershowitz Supports the Pope

I became a lawyer largely because of Alan Dershowitz: I read a couple of books he wrote about being a lawyer back when I'd gotten out of college, and together with Vincent Bugliosi's Helter Skelter (the book about the Manson murders) it led to me making the Big Decision as a result.

He's disappointed me since then; he's a bit of a whiner, and tends to throw around extreme rhetoric at his opponents. He's also pretty left wing.

On the other hand, he takes his Jewish faith seriously and has some respect for other traditional faiths.

So imagine my surprise at his article today about Benedict XVI, which supported him pretty significantly.

An interesting read.
