So the Pope said I can go to heaven...

...and that's pretty cool of him. 

I knew there was a reason I wasn't trolling this guy's Twitter account. 

Now, I'm no fan of the job, in general. But this guy seems alright!

The Pope, Evangelicals and the War Against Free Thought

Pope Tweets for First Time



(www.thedailybeast.com)

 

If only Saint Peter could have sent a direct message to the Galatians. The first pope never had the chance, but his successor in the apostolic succession, Benedict XVI, has joined the microblogging service. The first…

A Declaration To The Conquistadores by Pope Julius II

Of all these nations God our Lord gave charge to one man, called St. Peter, that he should be Lord and Superior of all the men in the world, that all should obey him, and that he should be the head of the whole human race, wherever men should live, and under whatever law, sect, or belief they should be; and he gave him the world for his kingdom and jurisdiction.

And he commanded him to place his seat in Rome, as the spot most fitting…

The Day the Catholic Church Dies

The day the Church dies there will be no sounds of joy among the godless:

No horns blown or parades thrown,

Rejoicing in the streets or marching to the beat,

No angels from Heaven to smite us down,

No Devil to laugh at our descent.

The end of the world will still belong to the sun,

When the Church takes its final breath

On a day no different than today

In a world with problems unfit for gods.

Where a frock is suitable only for Halloween;

A relic of a…

Suffering and The Shroud

From Catholic News Service



Pope Benedict spent May 2 by visiting Turin, Italy, where he celebrated an outdoor mass and knelt in silent prayer before the Shroud of Turin, which many Catholics still believe to be the burial cloth of Jesus Christ despite mountains of evidence to the contrary.



After spending time… Continue

Help fight child molestation by catholic priests one community at a time!

An Open Letter to My Fellow Godless Heathens,



I am really desperate here. I have been called a bigot for speaking out against the Catholic church! If it at all possible I would really appreciate a tweet in support (if you are in agreement of course) of my essay that challenges the Pope and the laity in their handling of the continuing problem of priests raping and molesting young children. My editorial was published in the Wednesday Journal a local newspaper in Oak Park, IL which is… Continue

Pope's letter protects church, not its victims

The Pope’s letter on child sexual abuse holds lessons for civic society. What he writes to Catholics about religion is a matter between him and them. But the Catholic church also operates within civic society, acts as a quasi-State at the United Nations, and sends ambassadors to real States. And the Pope’s letter includes assertions about secular society that are factually wrong.



Having read the full letter, the following seems clear:



1. The Pope’s main priority is to… Continue

A Simple Solution to World Hunger - Stephanie Foran



“Sell the Vatican, feed the world” (Silverman, 2009). It’s a saying that has recently started circulating the Internet. Sarah Silverman, a popular comedian, made a video and posted it to the popular video-sharing website YouTube, and her movement quickly caught on. Initially coined for… Continue

Sarah Silverman says Sell the Vatican...

..but wait... the whole Catholic shtick is "suffering"... right?... and who could be suffering more than people starving to death?! I'll tell you who! The Pope! How do I figure?! Like this: To be a good Catholic, you have to suffer. The Pope WISHES he could suffer, but he HAS to live in the marble palace and sit on the gilded throne and ride in the Mercedes PopeMobile.... He HAS to, because it's his calling... But, because of that, he CAN'T suffer, which causes HIM the greatest suffering OF… Continue

Hello World! :)

At the first post I'm going to keep as brief as possible, mostly because later posts probably will be much larger than this one, and less boring (hopefully). Some of my posts will be translations from www.racjonalista.pl, which is probably understandable even for non polish speakers. I will however add some of my comments to these articles, so they won't be just reprints. After all, the idea of a blog is to share… Continue

Catholic Churches Charge 11¢ Each for Admission

In 2008 the reported number of claims against catholic priests for sexual abuse rose 16%, in the US. Found by a study commissioned by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops. The report found 803 new allegations in 2008, compared with 692 in 2007. For 2008 $436m was paid out for abuse cases in the US only; most of that amount was victim compensation.



There are around 75 million catholics… Continue

The Vatican Is Hard At Work Proving Their Hypocrisy

You gotta love the Vatican. All in one weekend they've lifted the excommunication of a bishop that denies the Holocaust ever happened (http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/europe/01/26/pope.holocaust.denial/index.html) and slammed President Barack Obama for lifting the ban on U.S. funding for foreign family planning groups because some of those groups support abortion (http://www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1873904,00.html).



So what's the message here? Killing babies is evil - unless… Continue
