The Pope wears funny hats



Whenever a cult leader sets himself up as God's infallible wingman, here on Earth, lock away the kids. Which is why I'd like to tip off law enforcement to an even larger child-abusing religious cult. Its leader also has a compound, and this guy not only operates outside the bounds of the law, but he used to be a Nazi and he wears funny hats. That's right, the Pope is coming to America this week and ladies, he's single!

Now I know what you're thinking: "Bill, you shouldn't be saying that the Catholic Church is no better than this creepy Texas cult." For one, altar boys can't even get pregnant. But really, what tripped up the little cult on the prairie was that they only abused hundreds of kids, not thousands, all over the world. Cults get raided, religions get parades. How does the Catholic Church get away with all of their buggery? Volume, volume, volume!

If you have a few hundred followers, and you let some of them molest children, they call you a cult leader. If have a billion, they call you "Pope." It's like, if you can't pay your mortgage, you're a deadbeat. But if you can't pay a million mortgages, you're BearStearn and we bail you out. And that is who the Catholic Church is: the BearStearns of organized pedophilia. Too big, too fat. When the current pope was in his previous Vatican job as John Paul's Dick Cheney, he wrote a letter instructing every Catholic bishop to keep the sex abuse of minors secret until the Statute of Limitations ran out. And that's the Church's attitude: "We're here, we're queer, get used to it..."


Mahr got some flak from the Catholic League for that bit of humor, so he apologized -- sort of.

When I first heard about Bill Maher being asked to apologize for saying that the current pope used to be a nazi and was the head of a cult that molested children, I said, well, it's true.

There was a long piece in the op-ed section of my local paper about this yesterday. The writer was upset that Maher was so mean and nasty about the Pope when he prayed with the victims of the abuse, like that made everything all better!

To my knowledge, the man never apologized about his part in keeping those pedophile priests in the clergy and safe from justice under John Paul XXII, so he deserves what he gets.

What gets me is that christians can spew falsehoods and gossip about anything or anyone with very little backlash.

Then again who gives a shit about what most fundies say,they believe in talking snakes and donkeys.

*WTF is happening to free speech?
