The Pope is a Douchebag for the Ages

Monday, February 2, 2009


On the heels of Pope Benedict XVI lifting the excommunication of a British Bishop who denies that 6 million Jews were killed in gas chambers at the hands of the Nazis, this douchebag excuse for a spiritual leader has gone and done it again.

This time, Pope RatNAZI has elevated an Austrian priest to the position of Bishop of the Diocese of Linz who maintains Hurricane Katrina was God’s wrath against New Orleans for the city’s sexual permissiveness and tolerance of homosexuality.

When will the 2 billion Roman Catholics rise up in unison and admit that their Pope is one evil son-of-a-bitch and should be replaced?

    Pretty sad state this popes convictions are in when he will even consider allowing a Holocaust denier back into the priesthood. This guy is a clown and has been a mistake for the church since the beginning.

    Why do you expect from a thug who was a member of the Nazi party when he was a youth?

    No matter how vigorously Benny boy denied his complicity before he got to wear the big pointy hat, the criminals he’s rewarding looks likes old classmates in a high school reunion for fascists. (“Oh, honey, is the swastika on straight?”)

    Maybe I missed it, but I didn’t see “Gas Thy Neighbor” in the Bible the last time I looked.

  3. I found it telling that one of the Pope’s first edicts after he was elevated was a searing, antigay tongue lashing aimed at the world’s gay and lesbian population.

    What a pathetic, out of touch man.

    I grew up with this kid whose family is Catholic.

    We attended the same elementary school, middle and high schools. He was part of our “posse.”

    Anyway, one day I came home from high school, I was a sophomore at the time and my mother told me to sit down because she had something to tell me. My buddy “John,” (I won’t use his real name) had committed suicide. He hung himself in the garage of his parent’s home. It turned out he had been molested by the same priest from the time he was a junior high school student.

    “John” was but one of the estimated 15,000 children molested by Catholic priests in the 1970’s and 1980’s.

    Big Hank,

    I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your friend.

    It’s outrageous to think the trust bond between adults in positions of authority and children can be broken and violated in such a cruel manner.

    Do you know what happened to the priest? Please don’t say he was allowed to get away with it?

  6. Big Hank says:

    Hi Aunt Peg – What we were told was the archdiocese did in fact remove the pedophile but he was just moved to another area of the country with the promise he would receive therapy.

    The Catholic church in the U.S. has been on decline for nearly 50 years.

    The decline of the Catholic Church in the U.S.A.

    Between 1930 and 1965, the number of priests in the United States more than doubled to 58,000.
    Since then the number has fallen to 45,000.
    By 2020, there will be only 31,000 priests left, and more than half of these priests will be over 70.

    In 1965, 1,575 new priests were ordained in the United States.
    In 2002, the number was 450.

    In 1965, only 1% of U.S. parishes were without a priest.
    In 2002 this number is 15%.

    Between 1965 and 2002, the number of seminarians dropped from 49,000 to 4,700.
    Two-thirds of the 600 seminaries that were operating in 1965 have now closed.
    Religious Orders.
    In 1965, there were 179,954 women in Catholic religious orders.
    By 2002, that had fallen to 75,000, in 2005 it was 68,634
    and the average age of a Catholic nun is today 68.

    In 1965, 3,559 young men were studying to become Jesuit priests.
    In 2000, the figure was 389.

    With the Christian Brothers, the situation is even more dire.
    Their number has now shrunk by two-thirds.
    In 1965, there were 912 seminarians in the Christian Brothers.
    In 2000, there were only 7.

    The number of young men studying to become Franciscan and Redemptorist priests
    fell from 3,379 in 1965 to 84 in 2000.

    Catholic schools.
    Almost half of all Catholic high schools in the United States have closed since 1965.
    The student population has fallen from 700,000 to 386,000.
    Parochial schools have suffered even worse. Some 4,000 have shut down,
    and the number of pupils has fallen from 4.5 million to just under 2 million.
    Catholic Marriage.
    Catholic marriages have fallen in number by one-third since 1965.
    The annual number of annulments has soared from 338 in 1968 to 50,000 in 2002.
    Attendance at Mass.
    In 1958, a Gallup Poll reported that 74% of Catholics then attended church on Sundays.
    In 1965, it seems that 65% attended, according to a recent Fordham University study.
    In 1994, it seems that 27% attended church, according to study by the University of Notre Dame.
    In 2000, the rate was 25%, according to the Fordham study.
    Indicative beliefs
    70% of all Catholics in the age group 18 to 44 believe the Eucharist is a “symbolic reminder” of Jesus.
    90% of lay religious teachers reject church teaching on contraception.
    53% believe a Catholic can have an abortion and remain a good Catholic.
    65% believe that Catholics may divorce and remarry.
    75% believe one can be a good Catholic without attending mass on Sundays.

    This Pope is out of his fucking mind.

    I mean, in order to become a cop, or an air traffic controller, or an FBI agent, you must pass a mental health screening test. But not to become the leader of an organized religion with 2 billion members?

  9. Brigadoon says:

    This Pope is a Nazi-lover. He belongs in the Third Reich. I hope next time they do better but I’m not holding my breath.

  10. libhomo says:

    This Emperor Palpatine is sadly too real.

  11. Fran says:

    A hate & discrimination endorsing Pope!
    Going backwards in time, the Catholic church is returning to the dark ages.

  12. Used to be a Catholic! says:

    Just remember, this Pope wrote the Vatican policy regarding how the church was to treat priests accused of molesting alter boys. Local authorities were ‘discouraged’ from prosecuting priests as the church felt that that was the church’s responsibility, not local authorities, thus protecting these priests from prosecution. Obviously this policy met with the approval of the previous Pope (John-Paul II). And don’t forget what this Pope said about gay people. Seems we are all a threat to ‘world peace!’ How any reasonable person can take what this man says seriously is beyond comprehension! Unfortunately, this Pope is responsible for helping to ruin many lives and is a real threat to humanity!

  13. Next time you see coverage of tornado devastation in some small town, make a note of the first picture they show of torn-up buildings (not counting mobile homes, which of course are tornado targets): It’s nearly always the town’s church! Therefore, using this idiot’s logic, churches must be abominations unto God. Lots more tornadoes tear up churches than hurricanes blow away cities…I see a more logical pattern in my hypothesis than in his! I’m just saying…

  14. Mauigirl says:

    This Pope is a sad excuse for a spiritual leader. He’s certainly not able to fill the shoes of the previous Pope.

  15. It is so sad that this guy does this kind of stuff. Just note, not all Catholics agree with this.

  16. Panasit (the real one) says:

    Did he explained why the hurricane sort of swerve out of the way of where the Mardi Gras was usually held?

    So many people died, why did it have to have a reason. Before homosexuality was okayed, there was the black plague. What was the cause of that?

    It’s nice to have faith, enough for you to do good things. But I remember I was in DC during the sniper shooting spree thing, and this one lady was asked by a reporter if she was scared. She said no because Jesus is with her.

    I guess Jesus wasn’t with the other people that got shot. I’ll bet she thought they were all devil worshipers.

    So who is a better person, someone who does the right thing because they are expecting a cosmic reward or someone who does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do and they care about their fellow human beings?

    One commandment, Thou shalt not be an A$$hole….covers it
