Pope Francis may well be the the most open-minded pontiff yet (unless ‘historical drama’ The Borgias is to be believed that is), but it’s doubtful he would have been too happy about the
Best headline you’ll see all week. There are only about 800 official residents of the Vatican which means that these were going to be picked up by one of those 800 people. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised to find out that the Vatican has dealings with South American drug distribution as well.

I like to joke about how stupid the Catholic church is, sometimes reality is better than any joke I could come up with.

I’ve honestly been too busy to do much research on what the new Popester is all about, but this picture is too perfect to pass up.

This is pretty infuriating. I can’t imagine there are many Catholics out there that don’t feel completely ashamed of the Vatican. Excerpt below:
Feb. 16, 2013 Late breaking news on the real reason why Pope Benedict XVI quit the job as Pope is centered around the fact that he was going to be charged for crimes against humanity by shielding pedophile priests in the RC church.
A statement given to Reuters reveals that the Church has decided to grant Joseph Ratzinger immunity against any and all charges involving his protection of known sex offenders.
As a high ranking member of the Catholic Church, Ratzinger knew priests who habitually were reported as sex offenders with children and shipped them to other parishes where they continued raping children.
Even after becoming a Pope as well he protected priests by denying criminal charges.
When he was an archbishop, J. Ratzinger knowingly and willingly protected the criminal priests and thereby avoiding legal and lawful charges against them. Now the church is willfully breaking the law by giving him sanctuary against the law.
In a statement to the press today, the Vatican announced that:
It will give Joseph Ratzinger, formerly Pope Benedict XVI a permanent residency in the Vatican, which gives him legal immunity to any charges against him.
The entire world is wondering why a Pope would consider such drastic action as quitting while still in the papacy, since historically Pope’s usually die in office.
In a report the church officials indicate they are offering Ratzinger legal protection in connection with any charges that he may have protected known sexual abusers in the priesthood around the world. The Church sources indicates:
“His continued presence in the Vatican is necessary, otherwise he might be defenseless”. By this statement we gather that if Ratzinger steps outside the Vatican perimeter he could be legally arrested and brought to trial for his criminal cover ups. The Roman Catholic Church is basically admitting the former Pope is guilty, they know it and further more they are giving him cover against the authorities.

I don’t usually like a lot 9GAG stuff but out of all the many Pope memes I’ve seen over the last few days this one made me laugh the most.

So a new story breaks this week that in Spain around 300,000 babies have been taken away from their families and put up for adoption to families that the Catholic church considered to be more “devout”. This amount could represent up to 15% of all adoptions that take place in Spain. This is a horrible outrage, the kind that someone can not read and not feel hurt by.

You know what really has the Catholic church up in arms this week though? Susan Sarandon refered to the Pope as a “Nazi”. Which, since he was part of the Hitler youth, is technically true and should not be cause for a great amount of alarm. Catholic U.S. representative Bill Donahue (a complete piece of trash in his own right) said that her comments are “ignorant” and “obscene”. This story seems to be posted up on nearly all of the tabloid sites currently. (Story link: http://www.tmz.com/2011/10/17/the-catholic-league-susan-sarandon-pope-benedict-nazi/)
Here is to hoping that we see the first story pick up a good amount of media coverage. It is something absolutely unconscionable and reaches the highest levels of appalling tactics. Chances are though if you see one Catholic story in the media this week, it’s going to be about Susan Sarandon calling the Pope a Nazi. The Catholic church should be crumbling, people should be turning away en masse and denouncing them for their horrific and often entirely illegal actions, yet they are still hanging on. How could someone possibly be proud to call themselves a Catholic?
