Readers know the Catholic Church does not get many accolades on Caffeinated Politics. It is not hard to fathom why that is the case. One only needs to follow the news. And have a dose of common sense.
Former pope Benedict XVI has once again launched into one of his mentally-detached wanderings. He has now accused opponents of wanting to silence him while associating gay marriage with the Antichrist. This is also the same knuckle-dragger who called homosexuality an “intrinsic moral evil” and said pro-gay groups promote “deceitful propaganda.” That is such a rewarding line coming from the Vatican!
The former Prada-wearing pontiff was never a part of the modern world. His glee over kneeling before a rotting body part from ‘a saint’ is far more to his liking then seeing the smiles of a couple who are able to carry a baby home following a technological conception procedure. His pleasure comes far more from the memories of indulgences and the infallibility of a pope than knowing gay couples can wed.
His latest rants are further proof as to why he is a living relic. He also proves why there needs to always be a dead pope before a new one is elected. Benedict XVI’s back-seat driving and desire for relevance are causing headaches for his successor. Pope Francis might read some of the history of the Catholic Church to see how the matter might be resolved.
And so it goes.
