Some Papal Logic For Your Weekend

As you may know, the Pope’s in the UK! It’s a big waste of time and money, but whatever, the three or four Catholics there in Britain will be ecstatic!

As you may also know, the Pope is infallible. Technically he has to invoke his power of infallibility to be infallible, but if he has the power to be infallible whenever he wants, how different is it from just being always infallible? It’s like the difference between .99 repeated and 1.

I thought I’d just give you some things to think about based on statements good ol’ Ratsy made to the Queen of England:

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”.

So, the pope thinks that atheists are Nazis.

Hitler was a Catholic/Christian.

Ratzinger was a Nazi (member of Hitler youth).

Atheists know better than anybody not to be in violation of Godwin’s Law.

Atheists support gay rights.

The Catholic Church spends hundreds of thousands of dollars persecuting gays.

Nazis persecuted gays.

I’m both gay and atheist (gaytheist!).

So, one of the following two things must be true:

1) I’m going to start leading a mass genocide, starting with myself.

or

2) The Pope is an ignorant poopyhead whose job in life it is to just say stupid shit that hurts people’s lives.

I suppose if I was willing to say “shit,” I could have done better than “poopyhead,” but at any rate, the message is delivered.

Have a good weekend everyone!

    Those who protest the Pope’s visit should heed Paula Kirby’s plea to not be distracted by these silly lies.

    Please, don’t give an ounce of attention to these ridiculous statements he’s made; they are easily rebutted at length later. Giving precious seconds to them during the Pope’s visit will do the Vatican an enormous favour.

    Don’t make the mistake of letting observers think that “atheist Nazis” is the big issue with the Pope’s visit; we have more important grievances with his visit that need persistence and attention.

    Instead, spend wisely the limited attention the media will give to the protests, by continuing to press the issues of Vatican human rights abuses: protecting child rapists, obstructing condom use and abortion, gobbling public taxes in democratic countries, persecution of homosexuals, and so on.

  • Ahab says:

    Amazing. The world already suffers under so many burders — war, poverty, oppression, pollution, disease — and the Pope is worried about those darn atheists.

  • Buffy says:

    He gets nuttier by the day. Why does anybody still take him seriously?
