Pope Benedict XIV stunner

January 13, 2008

We’ve heard some fairly irrational things for that new Darth Pope, but let’s take a look at a few:

  • “Above all, we must have great respect for these people who also suffer and who want to find their own way of correct living. On the other hand, to create a legal form of a kind of homosexual marriage, in reality, does not help these people.”
  • “It is good, that you enlighten people about Harry Potter, because those are subtle seductions, which act unnoticed and by this deeply distort Christianity in the soul, before it can grow properly.”
  • “Unlimited trust should only be placed in the real Word of the Revelation that we encounter in the faith transmitted by the Church.”
  • “If Buddhism is attractive, it is because it appears as a possibility of touching the infinite and obtaining happiness without having any concrete religious obligations. A spiritual auto-eroticism of some sort.”

Considering that this is a man that is so dedicated to doctrine at the expense of rational thinking, James “The Amazing” Randi was struck dumb when he read the following quote in a message about global warming issued for World Peace Day.

Any solutions to global warming must be based on firm evidence and not dubious ideology.

If only people like him were to extend this skepticism into every facet of their thinking.

    Wow, there are an estimated 500 Million Auto-Erotic idiots in the world, that really puts it into perspective. Thanks Pope Benedict!

    I think I would much rather try and reach a better state of being in my life by seeing all as equals and giving what graces I have to those who do not so a balance can be maintained rather than hide behind “gods” word that has been changed by man so many times that you need someone to spoon feed it to you every week for the rest of your life just to have a chance at bettering yourself. If you have faith, you don’t need to magnify yourself in a small box for god to see you, he is with you all of the time, not just Sunday.

    Besides, last time I checked, Buddhism is a philosophy that strives towards self improvement, not a religion.

    Read a book you old bastard…
