The pope is an Idiot


Apparently, the pope is now saying that atheists are to blame for global warming. Well, to be fair, I'm not even sure he believes in global warming, and he never actually says those words. He simply blames atheists for ruining the Earth. Remember, this is the same guy who also claimed that condoms are making the AIDS epidemic worse in Africa.

Now, apparently, atheists are greedy people who are destroying the Earth because we're all a bunch of nihilists...or something. I think the rebuttal in the second paragraph is pretty good:
Terry Sanderson, President of the National Secular Society, commented: “This is rich coming from the leader of an organisation that has plundered the world to enrich itself. As he sits in his golden palaces, surrounded by unimaginable luxury and material wealth, he lectures the rest of us about restraint and greed. We have nothing to learn about environmentalism from this hypocrite.”

I mean, is the pope really that idiotic as to not know that the Bible gives dominion over the Earth to humans to do with as we please? That most Xians believe that we don't have the ability to destroy god's favored creation? That the Bible has been and still is used to justify the raping of the Earth and its resources and that religious people tend to be the ones most likely to deny that climate change is happening?

That first picture of Ratzinger looks remarkably like Darth Sidious! Coincidence? I don't think so!

From the comment preview, I thought you were going to say, "That first picture of Ratzinger looks remarkably lifelike."

He does look like a Sith though, I agree.

Seems to me like a simple case of projection, seeing in others what you loathe about yourself! If ANY one group is most responsible for ecological ruin, it's got to be the Christian faith who never met a planet they couldn't destroy for the glory of G-O-D.

Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal. the book of psalms 69:4

dan,
Don't spam this blog with meaningless bible verses repeated ad infinitum.

Robert Madewell said...

Dan,
What does that verse have to do with the article?

Attack of the Scripture Troll!

Maybe Dan is getting his grade for creationism class. I'm sure that post is B+ or A- worthy.

I've never understood the Church's opposition to saving lives by demonstrated use of a condom. I guess human life is cheap, and it is better to enter the kingdom of heaven a virgin -- untouched by latex -- than having shared intimate unitive love with another. Or then again, perhaps the Church's opposition to condoms is part of its euthanasia scheme -- killing the continent of Africans with god's love. May mercy and love follow you all the days of your life, and you too can dwell in the Shadow of Death -- indeed DIE early for god.

BTW Dan,

That verse is not Jesus or God speaking. It's supposedly David. So as far as being a prophecy? It socks

The pope is an enormous idiot. I'm sorry but its based on the evidence he has himself provided through his own utterances. Things like atheism is responsible for global warming and secularists are like Nazis. Or that we need to inject faith in government. Yeah, because remember it was so great in Europe when the Vatican had a stranglehold on government? Please, give me a break.

Joey Rats is looking like a bigger idiot all the time!

Joey Rats is looking more and more like: "Dead Pope Walking."

They have the documentation with Joey Rats' signature all over the place. They have countless letters from bishops begging Joey Rats to do something about well-known molester priests.

Little deaf Catholic boys may make excellent molestation victims. They are powerless and cannot talk.

But, they seem to have grown up and hired some excellent lawyers.

Ha ha!

Bye-bye, Joey Rats!
