Das Pope

I published a post a few days ago in which I, jokingly, submitted that MoveOn.org would compare the new Pope to a Nazi.

Well, it turns out that it wasn't a joke and it didn't take a moonbat organization like MoveOn to make the accusation. It was actually the New York Times which did it:

"His experience under the Nazis--he was 18 when the war ended--was formative in
his view of the function of the church, [John L. Allen Jr.] said. 'Having seen fascism in action, Ratzinger today believes that the best antidote to political totalitarianism is ecclesiastical totalitarianism,' he wrote. 'In other words, he believes the Catholic Church serves the cause of human freedom by restricting freedom in its internal life, thereby remaining clear about what it teaches and believes.' Totalitarianism, indeed, critics might say."
You can't even jokingly try to be more outrageous than these people. They'll go beyond what you think is possible every time.

  1. You have a riveting web log and undoubtedly
    must have atypical & quiescent potential for
    your intended readership. May I suggest that
    you do everything in your power to honor
    your Designer/Architect as well as your audience.
    Please remember to never restrict anyone's
    opportunities for ascertaining uninterrupted
    existence for their quintessence.

    Best wishes for continued ascendancy,

  3. "Thought", while very verbose, you do realize that your post makes no sense at all, don't you?

    I used to do things like that at bars when I was younger: start speaking to some drunk in a language that they knew was English, but could not understand. Very entertaining.

    Please feel free to persist in your prose.
