It’s not often that I blog a story from Reuters, they’re slightly too globalist for my taste, and rather short on laughs, but this one caught my eye, and made me have a bit of a titter as well.
It seems that old Joe Ratzinger, (who will forever be known as “Pope Paedo Cover Up I”, although I’m sure he isn’t “Pope Paedo Cover Up I” as that honour must extend back way before even Pope Alexander VI, so he is probably “Pope Paedo Cover Up CCLXIV”) is going to remain living in the Vatican for security, and immunity over prosecution in connection with sexual abuse cases around the world. Well I’ll be buggered. (deliberate use of an old fashioned expression for being shocked)
In fact I’m not shocked at all, where else could the old chap go? Ratty steps down to protect the good name of the Vatican, LMAO, new Pope comes in with a clean sheet, Ratty given immunity, everybody’s happy, except of course for the countless numbers of children violated in the name of Mary, mother of Christ.
I really can’t be bothered to write anything else on this one, if you want to read the story, go to Reuters.
When I said “Pope Paedo Cover Up CCLXIIV”, I really meant “Pope Paedo Cover Up CCLXIII”. I forgot about Pope John Paul, who set out to clean up the Vatican, but was murdered in his bed.
If I have offended any believers of the Catholic faith in this post, please don’t take it personally, I have an instinctive loathing for all religions.
