These Things Take Time

The story of the absolution of the Knights Templar is a fascinating one.

What I cannot suffer, however, are cutesy attempts to editorialize about it by the MSM. This AP story, for example, begins thusly:

VATICAN CITY - It's not the Holy Grail, but for fans of "The Da Vinci Code" it could be the next best thing.

The implication (Intended? Unintended? My money is on the former) is clear: This historical development amounts to a vindication for those who believe all that crap DVC says about the so-called real history of the Catholic Church.

Seems to me it's rather impossible for this to serve as some sort of "See! I told you so!" moment for the disciples of DVC, for the simple fact that the Vatican is not, um, eliciting the services of albino Opus Dei assassin monks to keep the papers relating to the Templars a secret. Or anything else nefarious like that.

On the contrary, the Church is forthcoming about the matter.
