- Personally orchestrated the cover-up of catholic abuse by sending a letter to all catholic Bishops directing them to cover it all up and silence the victims – failure to obey would result in excommunication
- Demands that condoms (the only known protection that can halt the spread of AIDS) be banned in Africa … leaving millions to die of AIDS
- Is very anti-Gay
- Truly believes that a few magic words spoken by a male virgin turns a wafer into the actual flesh of a God for human consumption
So whats he done now? Well, in his latest speech upon arrival in the UK today he has said …
Even in our own lifetime, we can recall how Britain and her leaders stood against a Nazi tyranny that wished to eradicate God from society and denied our common humanity to many, especially the Jews, who were thought unfit to live. I also recall the regime’s attitude to Christian pastors and religious who spoke the truth in love, opposed the Nazis and paid for that opposition with their lives. As we reflect on the sobering lessons of the atheist extremism of the twentieth century, let us never forget how the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life leads ultimately to a truncated vision of man and of society and thus to a “reductive vision of the person and his destiny” (Caritas in Veritate, 29).
His ignorance is breathtakingly astonishing, especially when he himself was part of the Hitler youth (no don’t go there, all the kids his age were drafted, the pope was not a Nazi. But after being in the mix, he should appreciate that they were political fanatics, not atheists). By the way, that reference that he uses to justify his stance “Caritas in Veritate, 29″ is something he himself wrote. In other words, he is quoting himself … saying … I’m right, because I said so!!!
OK, back to this Nazi quip …the Nazi regime was in no way an atheist regime, and did not seek to “eradicate God from society”, that’s either an outright lie or plain stupidity. Lets try some facts …
“I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord..” – Adolf Hitler, from Mein Kampf
Does that sound like an atheist determined to eradicate God. It would in fact appear to be quite the opposite, it was Hitlers belief in God that was used to justify what he did. Shall we also mention historical facts such as the Reichskonkordat, a concordat between the Holy See and Germany, guaranteeing the rights of the Catholic Church in Germany. Want some photographed proof about how deeply in bed the Catholic church was with the Nazis? … if so, then try this link …(Oh be warned, its a weird web-site … its just the pictures that are of interest as evidence)
Now, back to the Popes bizzare speech, he goes on to say …
In more recent years, the international community has followed closely events in Northern Ireland which have led to the signing of the Good Friday Agreement and the devolution of powers to the Northern Ireland Assembly.
Sounds sugary and nice, the sort of thing you expect him to say. Well pause and consider the true irony of that statement coming from the pope. It was belief that created the devision that resulted in so much strife for so many generations. The architect of the Good Friday agreement that finally brought peace was Mo Molam, an Atheist.
So how does pope benny finish his speech? Well, like this …
Today, the United Kingdom strives to be a modern and multicultural society. In this challenging enterprise, may it always maintain its respect for those traditional values and cultural expressions that more aggressive forms of secularism no longer value or even tolerate. Let it not obscure the Christian foundation that underpins its freedom
Yet more complete bullocks … its our secular culture that enables us to be tolerant and multi-cultural. Its Catholicism that is grossly intolerant and narrow minded, demanding obedience, dictating intolerance (anti-Gay), and dispensing death on a global scale (anti condom). It is the Pope who is attacking our secular multicultural values in this very same speech.
I’m quite happy for folks to believe whatever they want, but when I encounter intolerance and misinformation like this, then its quite appropriate to stand up and declare it for what it is … “bullshit”. I’m not attacking, I’m reacting to this nonsense and defending our national secular and multicultural interests.

This bizarre speech is making waves as reported on the BBC news site here …
Comparing secularists and non-believers to Nazi’s is bizarre. When you think of fascists, an image comes to mind of folks who dress up in black and tell people what to do and what to think … perhaps a far better comparison there would be with Catholic priests.
