Pope Tony

Milli Vanilli

I don’t get it.

Ex-PM and career shitweasel Tony Blair converts to Catholicism and now turns round and tells the ex-Hitler Youth Weeble in the dress that the Vatican’s attitude towards homosexuality is wrong.

Surely if you choose to join any organisation it’s because you share its values?

If you don’t then don’t join it in the first fucking place.

Take that, Benny!

How cheering to read this story!

One of the world’s most prestigious medical journals, the UK’s very own Lancet, has very firmly consigned the Pope’s recent statement that condoms increase the incidence of Aids to the dustbin labelled ‘total bollocks’.

The Lancet’s words are worth repeating as they really stick it to the ex-Hitler Youth cunt in a dress:

the London-based Lancet said the Pope had “publicly distorted scientific evidence to promote Catholic doctrine on this issue”.

It said the male latex condom was the single most efficient way to reduce the sexual transmission of HIV/Aids.

“Whether the Pope’s error was due to ignorance or a deliberate attempt to manipulate science to support Catholic ideology is unclear,” said the journal.

But it said the comment still stood and urged the Vatican to issue a retraction.

“When any influential person, be it a religious or political figure, makes a false scientific statement that could be devastating to the health of millions of people, they should retract or correct the public record,” it said.

“Anything less from Pope Benedict would be an immense disservice to the public and health advocates, including many thousands of Catholics, who work tirelessly to try and prevent the spread of HIV/Aids worldwide.”

Splendid!

More papal bull

Isn’t life strange?

No sooner do I have a little dig at ‘The Priests’ than their boss comes out with this, although I’m guessing that my blog entry about The Priests isn’t the reason Pope Benny has spewed out the usual bigoted, blinkered shite this time.

Yes, that lovable ex-Hitler Youth member (an unenthusiastic participant apparently, although he/the Catholic Church would say that, wouldn’t he/it?) is at it again.

This time he’s addressing the issue of gender:

Speaking on Monday, Pope Benedict XVI warned that gender theory blurred the distinction between male and female and could thus lead to the “self-destruction” of the human race.

Gay and transsexual groups, particularly in the United States, promote it as a key to understanding and tolerance, but the Pope disagreed.

When the Roman Catholic Church defends God’s Creation, “it does not only defend the earth, water and the air… but (it) also protects man from his own destruction,” he said.

“Rainforests deserve, yes, our protection, but the human being … does not deserve it less,” the pontiff said.

It is not “out-of-date metaphysics” to “speak of human nature as ‘man’ or woman'”, he told scores of prelates gathered in the Vatican’s sumptuous Clementine Hall.

Well, I suppose that if we all went gay or transgender the human race would be doomed as we couldn’t reproduce, but I’m presuming he’s thinking about our SOULS – whatever they are.

As you may have guessed, I’m not at all religious – the whole belief system of all religions is based on as much reality as a Grimms Fairy Tale retold by a Tourette’s sufferer on crystal meth.

Moreover, with a religion such as Catholicism it’s not just deluded but dangerous when it preaches against birth control in an overcrowded world.

That’s one of the real threats – not gayness or having your front bottom customised heavily – but due to some doctrine cooked up over the last couple of millennia after some poor deluded buggers started telling fairy stories we’re letting some prat in a frock who’s out of touch with reality living in a big palace tell people what’s right and wrong.

As far as I can see, the Catholic Church is a total irrelevancy in the 21st century and the sooner it goes tits up, the better.

Footnote: I’ve just found this.

It’s a list of the frontrunners for the NEXT POPE.

Yes, that’s right, Benny hasn’t snuffed it yet and already even some Catholics themselves are looking at who’s going to be the next bloke in the funny dress at the Vatican…
