Nathan Bond's TART Remarks

Religion: Respect? Ridicule!

Arrest Ratzinger

with 68 comments

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.

  1. So you say, Hanswors, and yet, revealingly, you still comment. You should at least make an effort towards understanding the grand mythology of Mickey Mouse and its deep meaning. I know it’s beyond your capabilities but you’ve got to start somewhere. Then maybe you’ll begin to see your strong attraction to blatant self-contradiction.

  5. Hmm, “anythingg.”

    I see you haven’t yet experienced the deep and mystical profundity of Mickey Mouse yet, Hanswors. That’s because you’re as blind as those who won’t look at comics in the right light. Praise be to Mickey! Goofylujah! You have to read it before you can believe it. So you see, that’s why you can’t debate comics with me.

  8. McBrolloks, I share the consern as the RCC does not follow the recipe as shown in the Bible:
    1Ti 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

    Hans Matthysen

    March 13, 2011 at 22:20

  9. No Hanswors, with all your jaw-dropping gibberish it is impossible to have a sensible discussion with you. My offer to you to discuss a Mickey Mouse comic with you remains open, though. In all fairness, I must warn you that you will not be able to refute the truth of any of my interpretations. The reason is because I reserve the right to make any convenient stuff up as we go along. Will that be okay with you?

  10. ErickV, jy is weer te dof om te besef, dat julle die Bybel afmaak as iets wat dit nie is nie en julle is te lamsakkig om julle punte te staaf omdat julle argumente buite die Bybel, wat ter sprake is, wil voer. Julle wil ook in julle argumente veralgemeen en ons is nie swaksinnig soos hulle wat saam met julle op julle wa klim nie.

  12. Con-Tester, met al jou kennis is jy nie in staat om ‘n sinvolle debat te voer oor die Bybel nie. Dit mag wees a.g.v. jou gebrek aan intelligensie, wat dan veroorsaak, dat jy neerdaal tot op die vlak van modderslyk en soos jy spartel, gooi jy net modder.

  13. 😆 So tell us D’anus-booi Van der Moerig, what exactly do you do hanging about those street corners in the evenings?😆
    😆 Nice fantasy there, ol’ D’anus-booi Van der Moerig. My, my, what lengths you have gone to. Is that why it took near enough two days to scrape together around 300 words, hmm? And, wow, your ability to pull stuff kicking and screaming from your fundamental orifice is as endearingly impressive as your ability to reason or your talent for assimilating new information. Your article’s just bursting with razor-sharp wit, insight and flair. It’s a masterpiece, no doubt your magnum opus, your pièce de résistance. You should write much, much more than you do, perhaps for a market that loves your style – maybe someone like Hallmark.😆

    Remember that you started this shit-flinging, D’anus-booi Van der Moerig. You can stop it anytime should you suffer a moment of lucidity, as unlikely as such an event might be. Until you do though, I’ll carry on playing on your terms.

  15. Goeie berig in gisteraand se koerant. Ek kry nie ‘n link nie so ek sal maar copy en paste.

    JOHANNESBURG – Pandimonium het vanoggend buite die Randse Strafhof losgebars toe Dominee Egbertus Dooieweerdt agtien keer lewenslank tronk toe gestuur is nadat hy deur Regter Thomas Broomberg en twee assesore skuldig bevind is op 18 klagtes van misdade teen die mensdom. Regskenners het die uitspraak as ‘n sleutelsaak in, nie net Suid-Afrikaanse nie, maar wêreldregsgeskiedenis beskryf.

    Dominee Dooieweerdt het tereg gestaan op 18 klagtes van misdade teen die mensdom nadat hy daarvan beskuldig is dat hy tydens 18 agtereenvolgende Sondae, fantasië as die waarheid in die openbaar verkondig het. Van hierdie skreiende verdigsels sluit in ‘n kind wat uit ‘n maagd gebore is, ‘n man wie, nadat hy drie dae dood was, uit sy graf opgestaan het nadat sy lyk reeds in ‘n gevorderde stadium van ontbinding was, en, die beste een, dat hierdie selfde man 40 dae later eenvoudig net die ruimte vanaf die Olyfberg oorkant die Hinnomsdal buite Jerusalem, ingevaar het.

    Regter Broomberg het in sy uitspraak gesê dat hy geweldig beindruk is met die getuienis van die staat se hoofgetuie, Professor Doktor Cont Poester, PhD(Biologie), PhD(Argeologie), PhD(Dierkunde),PhD(Paleontolgie),PhD(Kosmologie),PhD(Kakpraat).

    Professor Poester het met onvergeleke, onaanvegbare logika aan die hof verduidelik hoe die mites wat Dooieweerdt so onbeskaamd as die waarheid verkondig het, die mensdom in grenslose ellende gedompel het. Terwyl Professor Poester getuig het, was die walging en skok duidelik op Regter Broomberg se gesig te bespeur.

    Die regter het dit dan ook duidelik tydens vonnisoplegging gestel dat Dominee Dooieweerdt sy sterre, sy gode, sy engeltjies, die hele lot, kan dank dat die doodstraf in Suid-Afrika afgeskaf is. Niks sou hom en sy assesore meer plesier gegee het as om Dooieweerdt 18 keer galg toe te stuur nie.

    Die reaksie op die saak was ook oorweldigend in die buiteland. Verskeie anti-godsdienstige organisasies wêreldwyd het reeds aangekondig dat hulle alle predikante, priesters, pastore en evangeliste met valkoë dophou. Uit Parys, Frankryk word berig dat die voorsitter van l’Alliance Croire de Pas, ‘n radikale atheistiese organisasie, Professor Poester 600 000,00 Euro’s aangebied het om vir hulle te getuig, sou hulle ‘n prediker betrap in die verkondiging van fantasië as die waarheid.

    Die probleem met jou is dat jy te dof is om agter te kom dat jy ore aangesit word.
    Jou intelegensie is beperk tot die bybel. Jy kan nie buite daardie box dink nie. Al wat jy en al die ander christene doen is om versies uit die ou boek aan te haal en dit as feite voor te hou. Dan kom jy en se dat dit “geestelik” gesien moet word.

  22. Hanswors, when I read the drivel that you and your intellectual equal, ol’ D’anus-booi Van der Moerig, regularly spew forth, no mirror is required. It’s as plain as day that you morons are completely clueless – so clueless, in fact, that you aren’t capable of recognising your cluelessness. If you okes even had a smidgen of intelligence, there’d be at least some hope and I’d point you to some reading material that’ll perhaps clear things up for you dopes. As things are, all that’s left is to laugh at your stupidity whenever you put it on display.

  26. 😆 Whatever tickles that sterile little nonentity of yours you call a “brain,” D’anus-booi Van der Moerig. A drooling, grunting, lobotomised caveman-in-a-suit like you is as transparent as a fart in a Jiffy bag – and about as amusing. That’s why you keep responding and I keep pushing all the right buttons. Now stop trying so desperately to make sense – you’re utterly useless at it, in case that fact had escaped your feeble cognitive abilities – and get on with the much more pressing business of trying to insult me and fantasising about blikseming me, please. 😆

    Remember that you started this shit-flinging, D’anus-booi Van der Moerig. You can stop it anytime should you suffer a moment of lucidity, as unlikely as such an event might be. Until you do though, I’ll carry on playing on your terms.

As for “intimidation,” “living up to expectations,” “pathetic response,” and “spouting bullshit,” that’s your view, amply helped along with great gobs of fantasy and delusions of mental acuity. Long may it keep you warm in bed. Just don’t admit it, that’s all. 😆

You’re just too thick to realise that all it does is demonstrate what a brain-dead, arrogant, incapable, standard-three, warthog-shit-for-brains, argumentum-ad-ignorantiam-loving, graceless prick you are. 😆

    So Sadam Hussein’s actions for which he was executed, were mere fantasies that were promoted as truth. Interesting.

    So the Nazi persecution of Jews did not really happen. It was a mere fantasy promoted as truth. Fucking interesting.

    So the murder and mayhem perpetrated by the Cruisaders were fantasies promoted as truth. Fuckin’ remarkable.

    So from an atheist’s point of view, every relegious preacher commits a crime against humanity every time he preaches.

    What abominable cowshit! Cont-Poester, you are more fucked up than even I fathomed.

    Daan Van der Merwe

    March 3, 2011 at 21:10

  35. Well, D’anus-booi Van der Moerig, that’s what happens when you combine a standard-three runny-rhinosaurusshit-for-brains facility for argumentum ad ignorantiam with a proven non-ability to see obvious implications. Crimes against humanity are almost universally predicated on fantasies that are or were promoted as truth.

    McBrolloks

    February 26, 2011 at 23:45

  41. Charges initiated against Pope for crimes against humanity:

    Two German lawyers have initiated charges against Pope Benedict XVI at the International Criminal Court, alleging crimes against humanity.

    Their charges concern “three worldwide crimes which until now have not been denounced … (as) the traditional reverence toward ‘ecclesiastical authority’ has clouded the sense of right and wrong”.

    (Emphasis added.)

    The emphasised bit says it just beautifully what is putrid at the core of all religion. Let’s hope that the ICC entertains the case in the light that it properly deserves. It’s just a pity that the Hitchens/Dawkins initiative last year in September fell flat.

    Con-Tester

    February 26, 2011 at 23:16

  42. On every site that I can that mentions the unholy catholic church, I post a plea to the police to do what they SAY they will do: Go after paedophiles with all their might. If there’s one crime cops hate it’s child abuse. EXCEPT when its perpetrated by men in funny dresses and hats. Then the officers seem to stand back in awe. I urge all cops everywhere to investigate all catholic churches – help protect the kids and show the priests that The Law (not Their Lies) is paramount.

  53. Hans, you’re avoiding the subject again by changing it. That’s what believers always do when they’re cornered. You don’t hold with RC doctrine because you never grew up with it or contemplated it seriously. Your latest comment proves it. Now try being a little more consequent with your arguments.

    Con-Tester

    June 7, 2010 at 21:07

  54. Con-Tester, sorry to disapoint you as my sundayschool days were Methodist. I was confirmed as a Dutch Reform and have since found a more exilent way of salvation. My parents were Duch Reform and did not appreciate all my questions.

    Hans Matthysen

    June 7, 2010 at 20:40

  55. No Hans, that’s definitely not why you “do not regard the RCC as the Church God established through Jesus Christ.” The real reason is that you never seriously contemplated any religious precepts other than the ones you grew up with. You’re just perpetuating the same thing your parents and peers drummed into you from your earliest age, namely, “It’s true because I say it’s true. I can show you an old book. You can’t prove me wrong.”

    Con-Tester

  57. But their clergy aren’t married men, Hans. That’s because their clergy are embodiments of Jeeeesusss on Earth, and Jeeeesusss was never married, Hans. And Hans, who the hell are you to challenge nearly 2,000 years of apostolic succession and papal infallibility, hmm? Still Hans, the fact remains that the RCC clergy is bound by its own traditions and rules, which make them commit depravities. So much for the moral mitigations of religion.

    Con-Tester

    May 19, 2010 at 21:16

  58. Con-Tester, I am not trying to cover anything up or don’t you understand the English language very well?
    I point out again, why they appear to have a problem with child abuse.
    1 Tim. 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
    Their clergy should be married men, as prescribed in the Bible.

    Hans Matthysen

    May 19, 2010 at 20:33

  59. Oh, and I neglected to mention explicitly the glaringly obvious fact something about the RCC appears to encourage its servants to commit child abuses and then to try covering them up.

    Con-Tester

    May 19, 2010 at 09:10

  60. Hans, the fact remains that among these essentially self-appointed religious guardians of society’s morality, the incidence of both child abuse and its cover-up is much, much higher than elsewhere. Notwithstanding your infantile and failed attempts to conjure up an excuse for it, one can expect that said incidence should be exactly zero. But your god-addled brain is apparently incapable of understanding that these abuses and their deliberate cover-up constitute a betrayal of trust of the most egregious kind. So please carry on with this boring clowning about in the hope that someone – anyone – who has thought about it for even half a second might start believing you.

    Con-Tester

    May 19, 2010 at 09:02

  61. McBrollocks and Savage, the fact remains that the greater majority of RCC clergy and members are good people, who do not indulge in unacceptable behavior.

  62. Old Ratzi is trying to get out jail free here.

    “The Vatican is expected to assert that bishops aren’t its employees because they aren’t paid by Rome, don’t act on Rome’s behalf and aren’t controlled day-to-day by the pope — factors courts use to determine whether employers are liable for the actions of their employees..”

  67. While I really do admire Dawkins’ and Hitchens’ determination and initiative, I’m not convinced that they’ll succeed, despite, of course, really hoping that they will. Some excuse or other will be cooked up that will facilitate Ratzi’s slithering through some legal loophole or other, maybe something like the sovereignty of the RCC being globally inviolable or something similarly contrived and trite.

    Meanwhile, in an unprecedented move of moral courage, the Archbishop of Johannesburg, Buti Tlhagale, has examined the wider implications of RC priests’ unsavoury behaviour, and indicated that there likely are numerous unreported instances of it in Africa. Elsewhere, an Irish victim wrote an open letter of “appreciation” to Benny Dick concerning his recent apology.
