Never quite understood why but the phrase “No atheists in foxholes” is often used as a trump card in favor of religion. I guess it’s supposed to be good to spend part of your time in fox holes.
So how many popes have been in fox holes? Presumably in combat. I realize that is probably a bit unfair since popes tend to be old. How about cardinals and archbishops? Probably too old as well.
Maybe bishops? Some of them seem quite young and in good heath. Any examples?
Just seems that if spending time in fox holes is a plus then the Church’s mid and upper management appear to be failing the test.
