God Hates Political Prisoners

For those of you keeping score at home, the Vatican's position is:

Membership in Hitler Youth, OK.

Membership in Amnesty International, not so much.

Glad we could clear that up.

Sigh. This new pope sucks, though he does have impressive taste in footware.

Wow-- as if I didn't have enough reasons to hate organized religion...

Hey, at least he wasn't wearing Crocs, Flannery...

Flannery Alden said...

True...though I believe he probably has a pair for informal events...or when he's drinking with W.

What do you think they talk about what when they get together? Maybe the shared experience of being war criminals?

Flannery Alden said...

I think they laugh over the many snow jobs they have perpetrated on the general public. And golf their handicaps.

I want it on record that even when I was devoutly Catholic, I thought this aborition stuff was a grand waste of time, especially when white-haired old MEN are in charge of women's reproductive rights.

Meanwhile, nothing like the all-or-nothing approach to everything, right?? Maybe Shrub and the Pople talked about all the times they've been completely binary in their decisions, and how much chaos that caused the world's populations and had a good chuckle...??

You know, Flan, the last time I wore red shoes, I got hit on by an old hippy lady who said she had a thing for guys with red shoes. I wonder if the same thing happens to him. Probably not. That's a pretty specific fetish.

I don't think anyone really pays attention to him. I don't know of any Catholic who does.
