Stephen Fry on why the Catholic church is not a force for good, 2009

This is from 2009, so many have probably seen it. A pretty good speech by actor Stephen Fry (who will appear in the next Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes movie) against the current state of the Catholic religion/nation.  Soon I will see Stephen Fry accept an award in Harvard Square.

Incredible.  I began watching and thought, "There is no way I am going to stay with this for 20 minutes," but it is very compelling.  I don't really care for bible bashers any more than bible thumpers, but he really struck a cord when he asked what people thought Jesus would think of the Catholic Church today.  A wonderful turn.
