11 April 2010. In one of my favourite movies, And Justice for All, the character Arthur Kirkland, played by my all-time favourite actor, Al Pacino, screams: “And ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the prosecution is not going to get that man today, no, because I’m gonna get him! My client, the Honorable Henry T. Fleming, should go right to fucking jail! The son of a bitch is guilty!”
Likewise Ratzinger. The son of a bitch is guilty! He should go right to fucking jail!
Richard Dawkins said earlier today that Ratzinger should be arrested during his next trip to Britain. Dawkins, immeasurably more dignified than I, called the son of a bitch “Pope Benedict XVI”, Ratzinger’s ecclesiastical title.
I scorn the fucking ridiculous title “Pope”. What consumate folderol!
I do not wish to waste time on the absolutely obvious – if even an isolated case of paedophilia is exposed at a child facility, the facility is closed down. On what possible basis can the “Catholic Church” still be operational? The nidus should be wound down and entrepreneurial business be given the opprtunity to run the multi-billion dollar parts for the betterment of humankind.
Will the Catholic Church be brought down? Of course not. Too many idiots around. But my revulsion of religion has registered a new apex. And tomorrow will doubtlessly see this record bettered. It’s not just the Catholics. It’s religion. It’s the mind fucking, more even than the physical revulsion of paedophilia. It’s the systematic dumbing down of children to ensure sufficient idiocy in future generations to tolerate and promote ridiculous myth.
The buck stops with Ratzinger. Point. Had he even a veleity of non-mythological ethics, he would have resigned over the abuse scandal, the bulk of which, I am convinced, not having been revealed yet.
