Benedict has a profound and learned way of stating such simple truth. Please God he will be heard for years to come.

Quoting or Praising Pope Benedict or the Magisterium is a great way to be targeted for removal from Far Too Many Amerikan Parishes.

The Radical Leftist / Gender Feminist / Homnosexualist MISANDRY (Hatred of Men, Masculinity and Normal Heterosexuality) Machine may Hate All that is truly Roman Catholic -but just loves the Sunday Collection.

Which they use the other 6 days of the week to push their Anti Catholic / Anti Pope / Anti Magisterium Ideology - BAMN - By Any Means Necessary.

Perhaps a Smaller Church - but one Authentically Roman Catholic - is the way to Regroup and Move Forward without the Baggage of Misandry these 'professional catholics' want us to bear.

Here is a link to the by Kjell Nilsson-Me4ki. (CAUTION: May not be safe for work) It's a sharply cadiic satirical image that reflects the systematic abuse of children at the hands of representatives of the Catholic Church. It's not an attack on the pope and it's not an attack on the Catholic faith, Daniel Suhonen, editor of Tve4rdrag (Crosswind), told The Local.Bfcļļşħįŧ! It is a simultaneous attack upon practicing Catholics, the Pope and the Catholic Church without distinction. Had the "artist" sought to convey a message dealing solely with the molestation issue, it would have been far more appropriate to depict a priest and not the Pope.Benedict's record on the child abuse issue may not be but it hardly merits this sort of outrageous smear against his personal conduct.Moreover, proceeding with charges against Ske5ne Party chariman, Carl P. Herslow, for truthfully depicting Mohammad with his child bride while shrugging off this libelous insult to a living person makes a complete mockery of Sweden's justice system.The portrayal of typically aggressive and violent Muslims as "victims of oppression" and "a vulnerable group" would be hilariously ironic were it not so offensively hypocritical. Especially so with respect to the hundreds of Swedish women who have suffered at the hands of state-imported Muslim rapists.How can the cultural elites continue to retail whoppers like this one when the truth is so blindingly obvious to everybody?These budding Social Engineers have been breathing their own exhaust for so long now that they have lost all perspective and believe, quite simply, that the world cannot possibly survive without them. Their sense of self-importance is so towering whereby it is not just that they can do no wrong, but they deem their actions to be sanctified by Socialistic nanny-ism within its role as the ultimate moral arbiter. Think: Bono as President of the World.It is this monumental hubris that continues to presage a very untimely end for so many of Europe's political elite as they continue to betray their native citizens with almost clockwork precision and regularity.
