Is He Still Talking?

So the Pope says that homosexual marriages are part of "a new ideology of evil.”

Somebody’s jealous!
"It is legitimate and necessary to ask oneself if this is not perhaps part of a new ideology of evil, perhaps more insidious and hidden, which attempts to pit human rights against the family and against man," he writes.
As opposed to the insidious and open attempts by the church to pit human rights against humankind. You know, like denying women the same right as men to do things, like, um, be pope, for example, or denying men who become priests the right to have a family because the church wanted to be the sole beneficiaries of any inheritance men of the cloth might leave behind when they went on to meet their maker. Or is it instead as opposed to the insidious and hidden ring of pedophiles the Catholic church has been protecting at the expense of altar boys for generations?

The heathens among us might suggest that it is legitimate and necessary to ask ourselves if those are not perhaps part of an old ideology of evil that has twisted the words of a man who intended good for humankind, so as to enslave the masses to the voracious whims and insatiable appetites of a religious elite that indoctrinates its patrons through intimidation and mandatory self-denial.

Bite me, old man.

And when you’re done chomping on my juicy bum, you can get in your popemobile and drive into the twenty-first century, where people who give a shit about other people refuse to be beholden to your culture of fabricated good and evil, delineated by distinctions that are predicated not on whether what one does has an ill effect on others, but whether it undermines the fearmongering upon which you depend to keep your ignorant adherents putting their tithes in your precious baskets every week.

See ya when you get here, you pompous old bigot.
