As soon as I saw the white smoke -and well before the new pope was announced- I predicted it would take some moron 2 hours to whine about the choice of pope. I apologize to the Wizbang readers for underestimating the stupidity of some on the left.
So how BAD is Ratiznger?
I dont know much or anything about him BUT that he was a Nazi or a member of the Nazi party. How does he stand on issues and how far back will he turn the church.
From there the bashing continues. For the record it took about 120 seconds. I'll still take 2 hours for the first organized group whine.
BTW Look out for words like "lost opportunity." As in, "The Catholic church had a great opportunity to open itself up to a broader base. They could have supported premarital sex, adultery and abortion on demand but they lost that opportunity when they selected someone who actually believed in the teachings of their own religion."
It's a great day to be a Nazi!
The best thing we can hope for is that this will be the "worse" in "it's gotta get worse before it gets better."
If we're lucky, Pope Ratfucker will be even more reactionary, orthodox, and fascist than he has been in the past.
And then they wonder why people say Democrats are hostile to people of faith.
Update OK OK It was 1 hour... I'm sorry.
"We need changes in the Catholic church and this guy is a Neanderthal," Bono, 50, of Chicopee, said. "I honestly thought they'd grab somebody who would get away from the conservative, European thinking about what's going on in the world. I was hoping they'd bring in a young guy with an open mind. This guy has some baggage."
Of course Bono has no baggage of his own...
