This would be laughable if it were not so stupid and truly very sad:

"A Washington Post columnist has called out the Catholic Church for alleged anti-Semitism in selecting its next pope.

Jennifer Rubin, a conservative columnist and blogger, questioned why no Jewish people were considered to replace retiring Pope Benedict XVI in an online column, “Catholic Chutzpah: Vatican Snubs Jewish Candidates.”

Rubin, who often writes about political and Israeli issues, claimed Jewish people were deliberately ignored for consideration of the most powerful position in the Catholic Church.

“I looked at the list of cardinals who are potential contenders to be the new pope,” Rubin wrote, “and was immediately struck by what I did not see: a single Jewish person, man or woman, being considered.

“It seems that anti-Semitic discrimination is alive and well in the Catholic Church if Jewish people have no chance of attaining this holy post,” Rubin wrote. “In fact, I can’t name a single Jewish person who holds any office – minor or significant – in the Catholic Church."
