I can’t waste the mental energy to scramble for appropriate invective to appropriately address Malta’s Ambassador Plenipotentiary to the Holy See, His Excellency Frank Zammit, in reaction to this Facebook post of his. I am exhausted by all the levels I must count of how this is excruciatingly embarrassing, the diplomatic, the religious, the cultural, the basically decent. So instead I’ll sigh languidly and wonder if I was ever young enough to remember a time when this wouldn’t happen.
