Pope thinks abuse scandal is “petty gossip”

It must be nice to not have to answer to any authority whatsoever when you've committed a series of heinous crimes. While the secular world tries to grow enough balls to bring Pope Benedict XVI to justice (I really wouldn't hold my breath, people), the pontiff is still free to try and play down the seriousness of the allegations against him and other senior officials in the Vatican. Recently, the Pope sent ...

Pope issues pointless apology for child abuse, blames secularism

Imagine this hypothetical situation: you're implicated in a child molestation scandal in your powerful and influential organization, and the whole world eagerly anticipates your response to these allegations. Would your strategy be to issue an ambiguous "apology" for the suffering of the victims followed by laying blame a completely esoteric scapegoat? The only way you could ever get away with such weaksauc ...

Does the Pope understand forgiveness?

Ok, here's a not so hypothetical situation; pretend that you're feeling a little bit crazy (possibly due to mental illness), and during Mass at the Vatican you push the Pope down. The Pope then has a meeting with you, tells you all is forgiven, and then proceeds to take you to court. Does that sound like forgiveness to you? Well, that's exactly what happened to Susanna Maiolo, who suffers from a mental illn ...

Pope wasting his time visiting Czech Republic

Pope Benedict XVI is on a mission; he's decided to tour Europe to fight what he's dubbed "atheist ideology" and "hedonistic consumerism" (this from the same man who quite literally eats off gold plate in a gigantic palace). His first stop is the European capital of unbelief: the Czech Republic. According to the latest polls, only about 19% of the population claims to believe in God, and those figures keep d ...

Pope not welcome in Ireland

I never thought I'd see the day where the Pope isn't welcome in Ireland. But hey, a 2,900 page report detailing the sexual, physical and emotional abuse of children by the Catholic Church is enough to make even the strongest believer feel overwhelmed. A new survey reports that until the current Pope does more to compensate the victims, the majority of Ireland doesn't want him visiting. I got news for you: e ...

Pope sheds crocodile tears for victims of abuse

The Vatican issued this statement following the release of the Ryan report which chronicled years of abuse at the hands of priests and nuns in Catholic run reform schools, stating that Pope Benedict XVI was visibly upset and distraught. They also claim the Pope has been busy pressuring churches to be more open about the abuse. For anyone familiar with history, however, his crocodile tears are not enough to ...

Cardinals lose faith in Pope

I've written several times about why Catholics need to abandon their institution, especially with the shit the current Pope keeps pulling. Forget the terribly offensive and ignoble acts of pardoning a Holocaust denier, or quoting a 14th century Byzantine Emperor's hate speech. These are small potatoes compared to his edict to cover up child abuse scandals at all costs, and now even his trusted Cardinals hav ...

Pope welcomes Holocaust denier

It seems as though Pope Benedict XVI just loves controversy. He has reinstated Bishop Richard Williamson, an adamant Holocaust denier. It's become almost comical the level of callousness Benny displays to other religious groups. Williamson is the worst kind of antisemitic jackass, who thinks the gas chambers didn't exist. Where 6 million Jews went, he doesn't speculate. Perhaps he thinks they all staged the ...

Pope backs Intelligent Design

If you want any solid proof that a Pope is as flawed, ignorant, and uneducated as the rest of us, look no further than Benedict XVI. When he isn't busy making controversial statements about Islam, he likes to take a breather by trying to dismantle evolution by means of Natural Selection by perpetually pointing at dusty old tomes. His latest blunder comes care of an off collar remark asking: "[h]ow many of t ...

Mentally deranged man lunges at Popemobile

I always thought any man who wears a pink T-shirt must undoubtedly be a little crazy. This belief was confirmed as I read a story concerning a 24 year old man, dressed in the flashy color, who attempted to lunge at the Popemobile. He managed to hang on for several seconds before being wrestled to the ground. Police say the man was mentally disturbed, and rather than trying to hurt Pope Benedict XVI, he mere ...
