Good-bye To The Dope

February 11, 2013

Thanks to arkcode for the image.*

I’m very glad to see this particular Dope leave office. While I would stop short of wishing him ill health, I must say that he has been a truly awful Pope/Dope, in my opinion.

Remember, this is the Dope who said that the indigenous peoples of the Americas had been silently longing for Christianity to come … and to enslave and slaughter them.

Anger at Pope’s Brazil comments

This is also the Dope who threatened to excommunicate women who were so religious that they wanted to be priests. Way to win points with your female followers. Dope.

Vatican says will excommunicate women priests

And, of course, he believes gay marriage is insidious and dangerous. Dangerous? Really??!!? Dope!

Pope: Gay Marriage is ‘Insidious and Dangerous’

The one downside is the very real possibility that Richard Dawkins is right about the Dope, that he will destroy the whole rotten edifice of the Catholic Church.

Ratzinger is the Perfect Pope

Last, but very far from least, let’s not forget that this is the same Dope who tried to cover up rampant pedophilia in the Catholic Church.

More Evidence Emerges That Pope Benedict Helped Shield Pedophiles Before He Became Pope

Good riddance to bad rubbish. Good-bye Dope Nazinger!

Barry, if I am incorrect and you would like this removed, please post a comment and I will remove it as soon as I see your comment. Thanks.


Bill O’Reilly is not a Catholic (And So Can You!)

December 8, 2012

Sorry, I couldn’t resist modifying FFRF’s title to be a humorous reference to Stephen Colbert. I hope he won’t mind.

Anyway, this is a fantastic article about what the Catholic church requires for someone to call themselves a Catholic. According to church doctrine, if you don’t meet the requirements, you are not a Catholic. Read the article and try coming up with a guess of how many of the world’s 1.2 billion self-proclaimed Catholics are really Catholic under church dogma. I’m guessing the number of true Catholics is actually 2 or 3 orders of magnitude smaller.

Bill O’Reilly is not a Catholic, and neither are you!

Just on the very very off chance that Stephen Colbert or one of his staff actually (dare I say it) inadvertently stumble across my blog, I’ll plug Colbert’s book with the reference for my hybrid title in hopes of appeasing his lawyers him.

Catholic Church Makes Threats to the Immortal Souls of Believers

May 30, 2008

Vatican sends threat over women priests

Imagine yourself as a devout Catholic woman, or if that’s as hard for you as it is for me, just imagine that there exist devout Catholic women in the world. Perhaps they do not like the idea of marrying a dead myth and would prefer instead to be a priest. Now, the Vatican is threating not their lives in this world, but their immortal souls. Further, the threat of eternal damnation is extended to other highly devout Catholics who would ordain these women priests. For, if they even attempt to do so, they too are damned for eternity.

These Are a Few of My Favorite Onion Articles

October 11, 2007

I’ve been reading The Onion since about 1996 and love it!! Here are a few classic onion articles that never fail to amuse me no matter how many times I read them.

Dolphins Evolve Opposable Thumbs: ‘Oh Shit,’ Says Humanity

Pope Admits: ‘God Ain’t Said Shit To Me’

Bush: ‘Our Long National Nightmare of Peace and Prosperity is Finally Over’ — Too true to be good. And, quite prescient as well; check the date.

Voice Recognition Software Yelled At — This one is short and not politically or religiously charged. Just plain funny.

That’s probably enough for one day. I have to keep reminding myself to add humor to my blog. I keep getting too serious.
