Pope blames pedophilia on society, not church

Here's a typical Vatican strategy: when scrutinized, employ a tactic of obfuscation, and outright lies in order to avoid having to accept responsibility for immoral acts. While report after report continues to find the Vatican secretly harbored known pedophiles to keep them safe and out of jail, the world's largest religion is busy trying to blame everyone else for the child abuse that happened under their ...

The Pope goes on the offense

The best defense is a good offense, and no one knows this like the Catholic Church. The Vatican is busy trying to get everyone to forget they've been raping kids en masse, so they're going for the same strategy they've always employed when things get dicey: Find a scapegoat. The key to finding a good scapegoat is to first find someone who is less popular than you are. What's less popular than child molester ...

Pope says condoms are “ok” in some situations

No, you aren't dreaming or suffering from hallucinations; in a new book, the Pope has admitted that condom use may not be the big scary soul-sucking bogeyman the Vatican has claimed it is. Of course, it's not like the Pope promised to distribute condoms to AIDS riddled Africa anytime soon, even though their own moral blindness on this issue has caused the death of untold millions. The Pope gives the example ...

Pope calls Gay Marriage “Insidious and Dangerous”

In an attempt to try and divert attention away from the fact he knowingly conspired to protect child rapists from prosecution, Pope Benedict XVI called out abortion and same sex marriage as being "insidious and dangerous", two adjectives which actually effectively describe his OWN organization (but of course that's a different rant altogether). He came close to admitting some sort of culpability for the act ...

Bring the Pope to Justice

The Hitch is back with more on the Pope, this time with a well thought out article in Newsweek entitled 'Bring the Pope to Justice'. I feel like a lot of the writing out there regarding this whole scandal haven't done a great job of pinning down just how shamefully complicit the Vatican has been in all this. Well, it doesn't get more obvious or well laid out than this: In 2002, I happened to be on Hardball ...

Victim of abuse files lawsuit against Pope Benedict XVI

One of the many victims of Fr. Lawrence Murphy (the guy who molested over 200 deaf kids) has filed a lawsuit against the Pope in the hopes to uncover how much the Vatican did know about the abuse, and how they went about covering it up. The plaintiff, whose identity has been concealed, doesn't want any money; he just wants justice for his life having been ruined by the sexual torture he had to endure. I'm c ...

Pope Benedict XVI’s Pedobear greeting

Two things about Pope Benedict's planned visit to Malta have me smiling a bit; (1) the mayor of a small town has asked that a statue which looks like a dick be removed at the local airport for fear of offending the pontiff, and (2) a graffiti artist stenciled a few "pedobears" on the billboard marking his arrival, and the local news people have no idea what it implies. In case you're hopelessly out of the l ...

Richard Dawkins wants to arrest the Pope

It looks like someone is finally taking a stand against Pope Benedict XVI for his role in covering up the abuse of children, and it's none other than atheist superstar Richard Dawkins. Along with Christopher Hitchens, the pair is trying to see if they can get the UK government to arrest the pontiff when he comes to visit in September to beatify some 19th century theologian no one actually gives a shit about ...

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 ...
