Dawkins: Arrest that man

4/13/2010 12:54:00 am / The truth was spoken by Rich /

Richard Dawkins is keen on seeing the Pope arrested on crimes against humanity. And why not? You hear something like that and you dismiss it cause you know it'll never happen. But why won't it?

We'd all of course like to see Tony Blair and George Bush hanging by their necks for essentially destroying a nation and engaging the whole world in a fucking global Mexican stand off with Afghanistan and Iran, but this of course won't happen as those kinds of people are above the law.

The Pope shouldn't be though. He's not head of a State recognised by the UN. He's just an evil bastard and the leader of the worlds richest, most prolific and only legal paedophile ring - and that is all this is.

These priests were just paedophiles who only became priests specifically because they knew they'd be able to indulge their sexual deviancy with an inexhaustible supply of boys from their local communities and be protected by that - as Dawkins describes him - "leering old villain in a frock." Here's Dawkins' article in the Washington Post, his evaluation of the Pope is more eloquent than mine;

"Should Pope Benedict XVI be held responsible for the escalating scandals over clerical sexual abuse in Europe?" Yes he should, and it's going to escalate a lot further, as more and more victims break through the guilt of their childhood indoctrination and come forward.

"Should he be investigated for how cases of abuse were handled under his watch as archbishop of Munich or as the Vatican's chief doctrinal enforcer?" Yes, of course he should. This former head of the Inquisition should be arrested the moment he dares to set foot outside his tinpot fiefdom of the Vatican, and he should be tried in an appropriate civil - not ecclesiastical - court. That's what should happen. Sadly, we all know our faith-befuddled governments will be too craven to do it.

"Should the pope resign?" No. As the College of Cardinals must have recognized when they elected him, he is perfectly - ideally - qualified to lead the Roman Catholic Church. A leering old villain in a frock, who spent decades conspiring behind closed doors for the position he now holds; a man who believes he is infallible and acts the part; a man whose preaching of scientific falsehood is responsible for the deaths of countless AIDS victims in Africa; a man whose first instinct when his priests are caught with their pants down is to cover up the scandal and damn the young victims to silence: in short, exactly the right man for the job. He should not resign, moreover, because he is perfectly positioned to accelerate the downfall of the evil, corrupt organization whose character he fits like a glove, and of which he is the absolute and historically appropriate monarch.

No, Pope Ratzinger should not resign. He should remain in charge of the whole rotten edifice - the whole profiteering, woman-fearing, guilt-gorging, truth-hating, child-raping institution - while it tumbles, amid a stench of incense and a rain of tourist-kitsch sacred hearts and preposterously crowned virgins, about his ears.

There's many many people, sometimes even intelligent people, who will defend Bush and Blair and Cheney and so on..but who one Earth would attempt to defend the Pope and his band of grotty nonces for denying thousands of kids their innocence by their repeated rape and molestation. Only other paedophiles surely?
