Lancet tears Pope a new a-hole

The Lancet is one of the most well respected and read peer reviewed medical journals in the world, and they were not impressed with Pope Benedict's statements that condoms made the spread of HIV and AIDS worse, so they issued the following statement: Whether the Pope's error was due to ignorance or a deliberate attempt to manipulate science to support Catholic ideology is unclear. When any influential perso ...

Vatican insiders still frustrated by Pope

I often say the Catholic Church is dangerously out of touch with reality. How could they not be; here is an institution that still clings to most of its doctrinal roots dating back fourteen centuries. They are now stuck with one of the worst Popes in recent history, who seems so isolated from reality he can't even be bothered to notice what everyone is saying about him. The biggest threat they face are the ...

Pope thinks condoms will make AIDS epidemic worse

In the Western world, we are mostly isolated from the deadly effect of the AIDS virus. Those who have it usually don't make much publicity for themselves, and some hide it completely. In Africa, however, the disease is a plague that is slowly killing off their population. It makes orphans of children who then starve to death; it cripples food production as farmers are too sick to properly harvest the land. ...

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 ...
