    This cretin oversaw one of the worst periods in the Mumbo-Jumbo factory that is the RCC today.

    Bumming little boys, raping little girls, financial irregularities and whatever else they have managed to sweep under the altar carpet, all in the name of Jesus and how ever many saints there are leading to ‘God’. The only thing that surprises me is that he never appeared on the balcony with an altar boy on the end of his penis.

    These bastards are no different to all the other rapists, etc. yet the deluded souls who ‘worship’ still thinks the sun shines out of this shitheads culo.

    I don’t know about retiring to a mansion he should be locked up with 100 sex criminals until they shag him to death. “It is after all the only language he knows.”

    Got news for you., Bennie. The Lord NEVER sleeps. It'/s you people who dtop listening and go your own way. The “church” hasn't contained one scintilla of spirituality since its inception by Constantine and his mommie. It never has been the gospel Jesus preached. It is the largest component of the religion undistry: sooth consciences, of the faithful, scare the hell out of the
    “unwashed” and get money to send off to Switzerland. Take a public vow of poverty and live in luxury while your members suffer in poverty all over the world.

    If this industrial giant were a true religion, pedophile priests whouldn't be shipped off for rehab or transferred to another place where they weren't known to protect their perverted superiors. They would be defrocked and excommunicated for their sins and failure to respect their vows and covenants and avoid , as Jusus put it, “offend[ing] thee little ones.” They would be turned over to civil authorities for prosecution for violating the saws of their countries and imprisoned to suffer for their crimes. But NOOOOOOO . . . cover up and perpetuate . . . . How are these people different from the big shots at Enron or any other company that pays top dollar to the executives while screwing the employees and customers who make it all happen for the big shots? It takes a lot of balls for Bennie (if he still has any) to even mention God in the same sentence with “the church.” This man and most of his predecessors will burn in the hell they promise to all those who have dared to question them over the millennia. If God is “sleeping,” it's may only be in those instances when he withholds the lightning bolts as Bennie and his crowd preen in their silk dresses and pretend to actually represent God. John got it right when he said of the “Church of the Devil,” Great will be her fall.” Mommie church is really teetering right now.

    @8 Brassiere

    I bet you wouldn't say that if you had been buggered by the 'Priest' when you were a little lad.

    THOUSANDS of little boys were and thousands of little girls were raped and the arsehole that has just resigned KNEW about it and did fuck all.

    At least you are living up to your moronic views. Ask Fido Dildo to loan you his brain cell next time.

    Sad that Elena and brasileiro feel as they do. But some people never learn until they have the same edperience with someone who purports to rreprsent god. What a shame for that kind of mentality. There is an interesting interview on a USA site called with a priest who has some firsthand knowledge of the corruption within the “church.” Worth reading. The man's name is Matthew Fox. Here's the link:
