Alright, so the media often get things wrong, but I’d like to share this article where the pope claims secularism as a threat to humanity as great as fanatical religions – which is about as stupid as you can get. It’s possible that the pope has been misquoted, but in light of his other hate filled speeches, which have blamed the worlds ills on secularists, I somehow doubt it.
Unlike what the pope would have you think, I don’t see secular proponents bombing airplanes, trying to pass laws to discriminate against religions or spread disease… although the pope seems to think it’s happening.
I really don’t get his point. Where are the oppressed Christians, struggling with oppressors who are trying to marginalize them? All I see is the secularists trying to tell the Christians to stop beating on the jews, homosexuals, poor and needy – and somehow that’s a bad thing?
I’m sorry, Mr. Pope, but I’m not really interested in returning to the dark ages where inquisitions were allowed. However, I suppose I should be happy that you’ve finally noticed that the western world has left you behind. The bright and shiny bonus, however, should be that it seems Europe is doing well to discover that the church doesn’t have the answers it pretends to.
