Vatican Answers My Letter

So the Cardinals meeting at the Vatican have answered my open letter , albeit in the most reactionary manner imaginable. They said: "We don't give a shit. We're hanging on to the old program. And we're bringing in the rottweiler."

Despite calls for radical improvements in the Catholic Church's miserable record and its harmful effects in poor countries, the good Cardinals voted in an even more conservative pope. Unbelievable! Here's how The Guardian introduces the new pope:

"Ratzinger [ now Pope Benedict XVI ] has long served as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the institution once known as the inquisition. He was known as "God's rottweiler" for his unswerving defence of Catholic orthodoxy.

He has denounced homosexuality as evil and other religions as "deficient". He also reined in proponents of Latin American liberation theology."

We're slipping into another very dark age.

Oh man! Where the heck do they find these jerks? And then why do they keep promoting them well beyond the Peter Principle?
