    The Atlantic: Edward Snowden Is Winning:

    Earlier this month, Politico warned that Edward Snowden's "nightmare may be coming true" — that is, that his efforts would yield no systemic change. Even at the time, that was an iffy argument. But now it seems that the opposite is the case.

    •  Pope Francis should grant Snowden asylum (0+ / 0-)

      Snowden Granted Sainthood

      Asylum in the Vatican!

       Snowden Granted Sainthood
      Pope Francis not only offered Asylum to the renegade NSA staffer and media villain, Edward Snowden, but has granted the man Sainthood in a controversial decision that has the highest priests in Rome praying for simple answers.

      “What Snowden did for the suffering masses,” said the Pope, “is something we should expect not from worldly saints such as Kateri Tekakwitha or our hero Edward Snowden – but from ourselves. All people should be attuned to be atoned, to our suffering flock. We are all Edward Snowden. We all have the capacity to be saints.”

      Hardline Vatican conservatives blasted the Pope for what is being called “reckless saint honor” in the church.
