Pope speaks his mind

So criticising an institution for protecting paedophiles makes you .... like the Nazis. Interesting. I think the Pope needs help with Logic 101.

OK so I read the article and the inaccuracy and hypocrisy of the Unholy Father's statements made me pretty furious. Luckily they had a quote from someone with a bit of sense that calmed me down.

"Philosopher AC Grayling, an outspoken atheist, said: 'The suggestion that Hitler and Stalin were atheist extremists is a terrible canard.
'Hitler was born a Catholic and sent his Wehrmacht into battle with Gott Mit Uns [God with us] stamped on their buckles. It is characteristic of people of religious persuasion to use phrases like atheist extremist.
'But we are speaking frankly, which is not quite the same as tying someone to a stake and burning them.'"

"He praised Christianity - including non-Catholic denominations - as the foundation of respect for truth, justice, mercy and charity. They stem, Benedict said, from 'a faith that remains a mighty force for good in your kingdom'.

Whattapottashit!

I see far more respect for the above amongst secularists than anywhere else. He might also feel free to substitute the word "Christianity" for any other other religion, and I still feel my comment would be valid.

Intelligent toddlers know and respect truth etc without it having to be linked to wooden crosses, torture and eternal damnation.
