This article was brought to my attention a couple of days ago by one of my faithful few readers, but it took me a while to track down the original piece. So now I can actually comment on it. Thanks, Ted. Next time, send a link, ya bastard.

It appears that the Catholics have once again put their noses(and thankfully, just that) where it isn't wanted, right in the center of the Saddam capture. Cardinal Renato Martino, head of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, said he felt compassion for Saddam and that the world should have been spared the images of his medical examination after his capture. The good Cardinal wanted the world to know that the Vatican has always been opposed to the death penalty and thought that Saddam was portrayed "like a cow" on television immediately after his capture. Like a sacrificial cow, you mean. While I don't doubt that the capture of the world's second most wanted man wasn't much more than a P.R. windfall for the Bush Administration, I don't know why the Catholic church is opening up their fucking mouths in the first place.

They didn't support the invasion in the first place, since they were dealing with so much bullshit concerning their turning a blind eye to pederasts in their organization. It's okay to rape children, but it isn't okay to overthrow despots who practice genocide. But this shouldn't be surprising, since they did absolutely fuck-all when Hitler was exterminating the Jews en masse just 60 years ago. Well, they were the "other team", weren't they? Losing six million Jews helped to push up the Catholics on the religion Top 40, although I may be a little off on this subject. Oh, and let's not forget the whole slavery thing. They turned a blind eye to that, too.

It is amusing when the Catholics try to take the holy high ground these days. It seems like they are riding the coattails of the rest of the religious right, who are getting their day finally with the Bush Administration pushing for more integration of church and state. I got news for you, Bush wants as little to do with the Catholics as everyone else. You guys did a really good job of dragging your whole religion through the mud, and now you want a queer makeover.

Perhaps now God has turned a blind eye to you. Oh, snap!
