Stay Classy, Vatican!

I know he’s infallible and all, but this pope (whom some serious Catholics I know were against from the get-go) isn’t exactly recruiting record numbers of souls to heaven.  First, he lets back into the fold the holocaust denier who said:

I believe there were no gas chambers.

I believe that the historical evidence is hugely against 6 million having been deliberately gassed in gas chambers as a deliberate policy of Adolf Hitler.

Then, just to make sure the vast numbers of Catholics in New Orleans were pissed at him too, he promotes the guy who said that Katrina was divine retribution (the selective perception of those folks is astounding) said this about our city:

The conditions of immorality in this city are indescribable.

Many others have voiced their outrage over this, but we should note that Warren “apologizing” for “imprudent” wording ain’t really an apology at all.  But hey, when you’re on a roll, you’re on a roll!

    So many reasons for Katrina. Nagin blamed African Americans, this new Bishop blamed tolerance of homosexuality, Christian Right leaders in U.S. blamed abortion policies, some even blamed nutrias for burrowing into the levees. Maybe it is as simple as a divine hatred of Mardi Gras doubloons. Or better yet, perhaps God detests French Quarter paraders with giant phalluses attached to their persons who go by the moniker “Spermes.” The smiting and the spermes trickles down and all that.
