I Wish Pope Francis Was More Like Jeff Bezos

... because Jeff believes in something and won't let anything get in his way of acting on his beliefs. No, there's no mealy-mouth wussing-out when it comes to Jeffrey.

Yesterday, Outkick posted an article describing how Amazon/WaPo/Bezos is arguing that mail-in ballots are untrustworthy.

Jeff Bezos — a strong Democratic supporter — and Amazon are aiming to postpone a unionization vote at one of its warehouses in Alabama, the Wall Street Journal reports. Interestingly, Amazon has requested that the National Labor Relations Board reconsider allowing mail-in voting, claiming that the mail-in voting process has “serious and systemic flaws.”

Got that? Bezos and Amazon are doing all they can to prevent any shady activity when workers cast their ballots for unionization, and they are particularly concerned about the integrity of mail-in ballots.

You are likely trying to figure out how that adds up, right? The Washington Post, owned by Bezos, called any claims of mail-in voter fraud by Donald Trump and his supporters dangerous and inexcusable. Amazon even banned Parler from its servers, in part to ensure no one could claim voter fraud occurred from mail-in ballots back in November.

What more needs to be said? If Pope Francis had this kind of single-minded devotion to whatever it is he believes, the Church would be a force in the world. 

Back in the day, I don't recall Daleks playing a major role in the birth of Christ. This year's Vatican creche seems to indicate otherwise. Well, that's Pope Francis for you. Always coming up with something new.
