DUUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

NO Sh!t.

BTW, Your Brilliance...

Ice is cold.

Water is wet.

Night is dark.

And the Catholic Church has become a sick and twisted reflection of it's once proud and formerly self.

Forever tainted by their unwillingness to protect children from molestation, all Priests and Leaders are smeared.

Benedict, your "admissions" is too little, too late.

God forgive you.

This is nothing to do with Obama,Muslims or anything else, it's about the rape and torture of children, and we are not talking about something that happened 40 years ago,and even if we were,there are still priests who are known perverts in the ranks of the catholic church.
I can't think of anything more abhorrent than the torture and rape of children. Don't you think its time the Vatican put an end to this thing, once and for all?
It would be easy to do, just release the files to the police in the countries who request them.

The hypocrite liberal and Jihadist Islamic sympathizer New York Times is attacking the Pope as the leader of Christianity about gays in the church while the same liberal Elite liberal media support gay marriage.
The deceitful Islamic and liberal Brits that use the Shariya laws in their parliament blamed the Pope as the leader of gays that "engage in gay parties" in the church.
This is the new coordinated line of attack on the Christians by Muslim sympathizers that rule the liberal media in England and US.
The hypocrite socialistic and Islamic Jihadist sympathizer liberal media led by the BBC and NY Times are joining shoulder to shoulder with the British Imams and their Islamic Shariya laws.
It is time for the Pope to stand up for the Christians rather than confess to the liberal socialists NY Times about gays when the liberals are pushing the gays to US military and fight for homosexuals to marry as "husband and wife".
It is time for the Pope to stop apologizing to the brutal Islamic regimes like Iran and Pakistan and stand up for the Christians that are persecuted by the brutal Shariya laws Islamic regimes of the Middle East.
It is time for the Pope to stand up for the Christians that their churches are set on fire and their Christian bibles are burned and desecrated in radical islamic regimes o the Middle east and Africa.
The Pope's appeasement of the brutal Islamic terrorists under the rogue Iranian and Pakistani regimes and his silence about their attacks on Christians and Jews only brought more pain and suffering to tens of millions of innocent Christians around the world that fall victims to the barbaric Islamic Shariya laws of the 7th Century Saudi nomad tribes that abuses women and denying their human rights like they were slaves.

Are you upset?

The Brits don't give a flying fcuk for the pope, and even less for the muslims. We are sick to the back teeth with religion. We have had years of bloodshed on streets of Britain and northern Ireland by crazed Christian sectarian factions, and more recently, by Muslim fanatics.
We are sick,sick,sick of it, and we are letting it be known by the total apathy most of us show for religion in the UK, and the more the better, I say.
