This Time Its Papal!!!

Best headline of the day:

Pope Benedict learnt nothing from his time in the Hitler Youth

...although the piece itself doesn't live up.

Best comment of the day:

...when the Pope busts out with this kind of brute medieval crap, it’s really hard to restrain oneself from pointing out that he is an elderly man who dresses up in a white kimono and pointy wizard’s hat, waves about a golden shepherd’s crook and pretends to hear voices from a supernatural being who tells him what kinds of sexual acts are good and what kinds are filthy. Apologies to Catholic sensibilities, I love the rituals and respect the intellectual tradition, but, you know, come on.

The hat also makes him look like a 7 foot condom.

Update: dozens of pictures that make the pope look sinister! Click here and feel the terror!

I had to go to the second link to find out what this post is really about. Of course, it's about Rick Warren and Obama's inauguration ceremony.

Reading various outraged bloggers on this subject, you would think Warren was some kind of scary neo something or other. Even worse, he is a guy who believes the radical notion that marriage involves a man and a woman>. The horror!

Note to SSM supporters: It's Obama's inauguration, not yours. Quit trying to spoil his party.

I really wish BCL would turf that little fucker already. I don't think he's ever said anything remotely interesting.

Happy Christmas, everyone!

And Happy Holidays to you two humorless cretins.

It's a little late, after a year of your vacuous trolling, to expect good will, don't you think?

LOL ti-guy. You engaged in the same self pity last year when you said my Christmas greeting wasn't sincere enough. Get over yourself.

I'm just pointing out your hypocrisy.
