    Vatican honors founder of pro-abortion organization

    Of course, they're trying to spin it as a normal honorific, but this is certainly not what I would expect out of the "one true church":

    They're trying to "spin" it as a normal honorific because, as far as I can tell, it was a normal honorific. All 10 members of the Denmark delegation to the Vatican received it.

    The honorific was tied to the returning of some scepter from the 16th century to the Dutch royal family. Maybe it is more about pomp and circumstance within diplomacy than about signaling approval.

    Before many noted the significance of returning the scepter as an attempt to heal some breach caused by the Spanish Hapsburg's and the Eighty Years War.

    The Pope is d***** if he does, d****** if he doesn't.
