Quote# 72377

[Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens want Pope Benedict XVI arrested for crimes against humanity.]

The ONLY reason this has traction is because it's all about destroying Christianity (in this case Catholicism). Where were these zealots when the Pope was a Cardinal? They supposedly knew about it then...why not go after him then? BECAUSE THIS GIVES THEM A BIGGER HEADLINE WITH WHICH TO DISCREDIT CHRISTIANITY.

For the record, I am not Catholic, I think the abuses of the church stink, and those involved should be prosecuted. But this is NOT about any of that, it's about the hateful agenda of the atheists to do anything and everything they can to shake people's belief in God.

Folks like Dawkins and Hitchens are very miserable people...and they want the rest of us to share in that hopeless misery.

those involved should be prosecuted

So basically you find yourself agreeing with Dawkins and Hitchens, which just makes you hate them even more. Good show.

"Christianity (in this case Catholicism)"

So they are christians after all?

It's all about protecting little kids from being molested by the ones who should be protecting them against evil.
The victims in the past should get redress, rehabilitation and closure, and the guilty persons should be brought into the light and get their just sentences.

The only bearing that Christianity has on this, is that it's a powerful and immensely rich organization, that has done it's best to keep these cases in the dark, to forgive the perpetrators and forget the victims.

Every time I've seen Dawkins on YouTube, he seems to be a happy and solid person, with an interesting and fulfilling life.
If that's hopeless misery to you...

Persecution complex, D-type. I recommend a 50cc dose of Reality check and some aspirin.

But this is NOT about any of that, it's about the hateful agenda of the atheists...

So you're minimizing the abuse of children in favor of your half-baked rant against the "atheistic agenda." Way to know what's really the important aspects of the issue. [/sarcasm]

Folks like Dawkins and Hitchens are very miserable people...

So you know them personally?

But catholics aren't christian.

If they had gone after him when he was still cardinal, there would be not big du difference. If you allow abuse to happen, this things HAPPEN.

Well, Hitchens does seem like a very angry man with an axe to grind, but Dawkins strikes me as a decent man who genuinely enjoys his life. As for the other 'folks', you know what makes us miserable? It's people like you, trying to force your absurdities and systems on us. We don't want you to share in our 'misery', at least not myself, we just want you to back the fuck off and let us live our own lives.

Honestly, we didn't now how high-up it went before now. Back when the scandals first broke, the church hierarchy made a point of saying that this was isolated to a few dioceses. Now it seems much more widespread.

Only recently have we seen documents that directly implicate then-Cardinal Ratzinger in the cover-up. It's certainly not the fault of Dawkins and Hitchens that the conclave five years ago decided to elevate him to the level of Pope.

You immoral shits only care about what's best for the church.

Are you aware of half the shit the pope has done? If you were you'ld be yelling for him to be excommunicated.

Mrs. Antichrist

No, they want to end the misery and suffering being inflicted on thousands of young children due to the church's disgusting track record of protecting the clergy over the children. The pope should, at the very least, be brought in by the police and interrogated about his involvement in the cover-ups.

"The ONLY reason this has traction is because it's all about destroying Christianity (in this case Catholicism)."

Catholics aren't Christians, remember? They're a bunch of Mary worshiping pagans in league with Satan himself. Or so I'm told until you guys need to boost your numbers to count as a majority in an attempt to impose your will on others.

"For the record, I am not Catholic, I think the abuses of the church stink, and those involved should be prosecuted. But this is NOT about any of that, it's about the hateful agenda of the atheists to do anything and everything they can to shake people's belief in God."

Atheists don't give a fuck. At least I don't. You could believe the dust bunnies under your couch are god if you want to. I really couldn't care less. You're just not that fucking important.

"Folks like Dawkins and Hitchens are very miserable people...and they want the rest of us to share in that hopeless misery."

Misery loves company. Thus the Church was born so that everyone could gather together and wallow in it at the same time--and pass the collection plate, of course.

'The ONLY reason this has traction is because it's all about destroying Christianity (in this case Catholicism).'

Wait, Catholics are Christian now? Does this mean you're going to stop the anti-Catholic bullshit or are you just a hypocrite?

'Where were these zealots when the Pope was a Cardinal?'

The same place they are now, except with the old Pope. Who cares about him when he's a Cardinal? He isn't head of the organisation responsible at that point. But as soon as he is, by helping to continue the whitewash he is just as responsible.

'BECAUSE THIS GIVES THEM A BIGGER HEADLINE WITH WHICH TO DISCREDIT CHRISTIANITY.'

Are you not concerned about a child abuse ring that goes from the top to the bottom of a 2bn strong organisation's leadership? Or do you just look away when the Pope asks you?

'For the record, I am not Catholic, I think the abuses of the church stink, and those involved should be prosecuted.'

So you do agree, you just resent sharing an opinion with atheists. Big man.

'But this is NOT about any of that, it's about the hateful agenda of the atheists to do anything and everything they can to shake people's belief in God.'

Prosecuting paedophile rings is shaking people's faith in God? Dosen't the fact that all these paedophiles exist shake their faith just as much? Surely by getting rid of them you'd be purifying the church and making God happy?

'Folks like Dawkins and Hitchens are very miserable people...and they want the rest of us to share in that hopeless misery.'

Oh look, that old chestnut. Yes, I'll bet the Priests are a lot happier than the atheists, they know they'll be left alone with the choir boys because the sheep in their congregation will look the other way.

Christianity seems to be doing pretty well discrediting itself on its own.

I don't know anything about Hitchens but Dawkins doesn't strike me as unhappy or angry, from what I've seen of his public persona. Perhaps you are confusing passion with anger. The angriest people I've seen, the ones that really scare me are, well...you. But don't take my being scared as a victory. It just propels me into action, like voting, getting involved in local politics, becoming more informed about issues and standing up to people like you. So by all means, go right on ranting and raving. You're only working against yourself.

Holy discombobulation, Batman!
A fundie defending child fuckers in the name of a religious group that they ordinarily would condemn as hell-bound idol worshippers.

"But this is NOT about any of that, it's about the hateful agenda of the atheists to do anything and everything they can to shake people's belief in God."

Yeah, because every Saturday I and all my atheist friends and relatives go 'round knocking on doors and tell people that christianism is all a crock of shit.
Oh wait, no we don't.

They knew about it when Benedict was simply Cardinal Ratzinger and there were those going after him then for his cover-ups and white washing of the abuses. Since these efforts didn't pan out, they have to keep after him now that he's pope.

I think the abuses of the church stink, and those involved should be prosecuted.

If you really meant that, you would support their efforts.

Catholics are conveniently Christians again right at the moment. Next change in the definition of Christian... six minutes...

4/21/2010 9:09:43 AM



They can want him arrested all they want, but that doesn't mean it's necessarily going to happen. Unfortunately.

"For the record, I am not Catholic, I think the abuses of the church stink, and those involved should be prosecuted."

So what's your problem, Wyatt's Torch & the rest of you Moonbatshitheads? Don't you Protestants wish for the complete destruction of your hated nemesis, The RCC?

Or just too scared that if that came to pass, then Protestantism would be next? And exterminated just as easily via widespread & well-reported scandals?

Ted Faggard. David J. Stewart.

Just sayin'. And no doubt they're not the only (gay) hypocrite and paedophile in Right-wing Fundamentalist Christianity as a whole. After all...

When did you ever hear of messrs. Dawkins and Hitchens doing the same? Or any Atheist for that matter?

Those who shout the loudest have the most to hide, Moonbatshitheads.

"the hateful agenda of the atheists to do anything and everything they can to shake people's belief in God"

Even if religion was completely destroyed - as a result of the wrongdoings of the clergy of said religions (and only them; we Atheists are only stating that, as are the press, internet, word of mouth etc; and you can't dispute facts), that's a bad thing...

...how?

What do you care? Catholics aren't true Christians anyway (unless you want to point out that the majority of people in this country are Christians).

4/21/2010 9:58:52 AM

I know right? The nerve of them expecting a man to face consequences for aiding and abetting child rapists!

BTW Although Hitchens does seem a bit dour sometimes Richard Dawkins seems like a very pleasant, happy man. Neither of them give off the hopeless misery vibe (except sometimes during a debate with a fundie)

4/21/2010 9:59:50 AM



Yes the hateful agenda of atheists is to make someone pay for the crimes against humanity.

People's belief in god needs to be shaken. We have to throw off the yoke of religion before it kills us all.
