Look, the pope is NOT a pedophile He just runs an organization that supports and shields pedophiles. HUGE difference.

Not my comment, so I don't care. But you can bet your balls that the Church will use what it deems its parental authority to be busybodies, and some in the Church will use it as a tool for either aiding in pedophilia or protecting pedophiles in their ranks.

Trolling the trolls is so much fun.

Honestly though, what other evidence for the Pope being a Nazi is there other than "he joined the Hitler youth when it became mandatory for all young boys", which means exactly nothing. I haven't really paid much attention on his input on the subject of child abuse, so I can't comment there.

Shultz was not evil. He just worked for a very evil system, kept his mouth shut about problems and did not report things.

This. They keep ramping it up. The "Origins of Monstrosity" episode had me all "grrr a week?!" at the end.

Zachary Quinto is the man.

I would love to have been in the planning meeting for this season. "Well, we did ghosts last year, what topic should we do this year?" "How about EVERYTHING?" "Sounds good to me!"

Season 1 was a complete story unto itself,and season 2 is a whole different storyline with some of the same actors in different roles. It's a lot of over the top fun with sexy nuns, satanic possession, aliens, former Nazi doctors, serial killers, the angel of death herself, an even Ian McShane as a murderous Santa. I especially love Lily Rabe this season. She's hilarious once her character undergoes a major change.

If I used Twitter, I would be interested in sending a message to #askpontifex. I'm curious what the response would be, assuming my question would be answered from among the potential millions of other users who will want blessed, religious questions answered, crises of faith... etc.

I think if more churches went the e-church route and offered sermons, simple questions through chat, and the potential for more, it may help to connect them to a younger crowd. Whether you believe in a higher power or just enjoy the simple comfort of faith in whatever, ease of access has always been an issue. Heck a program by the church to help shut-in members could help flagging memberships.

figures that the antichrist would love amerikan horror story as it is a 100% mystery babylon show.

Or is this the last one for two months?

American Horror Story sucked. Well, not sucked, but it should have been about 20% of the length. After a few episodes you knew what was going on and you get to watch the actors bumble around while being functionally retarded.

Not really surprising since most US horror sucks. Just some scare moments attached to flashy CGI and explosions.

Demonstrate that the Catholic Church has always done its best to ensure that little boys are not raped in the face and bum by sexually repressed do-nothings whose "calling" is all that stands between dinner and a cardboard sign.

Oh, and don't forget mutant creatures in the woods.

I didn't see the first season but am loving this show. And yes, after the Dark Cousin episode, I can't help but be utterly transfixed by Lily Rabe. Where the hell did they find her? She's fantastic!

Let's apply their own arguments, then, shall we?

Example of theist logic: You can't prove our god doesn't exist, so obviously he does.

Extension: You can't prove that Benedict isn't an evil Nazi child molester, so obviously he is.

I think history has shown that keeping the Muslims out of Europe was, in fact, a really good idea.

From what I read, she did a lot of stage acting before her TV career blew up with AHS. She was even nominated for a Tony. I have a feeling that now she's broken out, we'll see a lot of good stuff from her.

Seriously?

1.From 1944-1945; every single German boy over 15 (and some younger) was conscripted into the hitler youth. If they tried to runaway or hide; they were shot.

2. If you want to get mad at people for protecting pedo priests; get mad at the bishops in the United States at the time; they were the ones who actively transferred pedo priests all around the country.


/ I know, I know; why didn't the pope do anything about it? Either because the American bishops didn't tell him, or because they were trying to handle the matter quietly. After it came out? Benedict, at that time, was heading up the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith; or as it was known in the 1500's, The Inquisition. And, he would have done whatever John Paul II told him to do.

Mad_Radhu: iheartscotch: 2. If you want to get mad at people for protecting pedo priests; get mad at the bishops in the United States at the time; they were the ones who actively transferred pedo priests all around the country.

"The Pope cannot blame the local bishops this time - they desperately tried to get the priest fired.

He cannot claim he was out of the loop: his signature is on the letter.

He cannot get an underling to take the fall: it's his name and his office behind the unconscionable delay and behind the actual, despicably callous and self-serving reasons to protect a man who tied children up and raped them.

It's over now.

When we look at this Pope we see a man who knew that one of the priests he had authority to fire had restrained and raped children. Yet he did nothing for years, and finally sided with the priest. He had more sympathy for the relatively young age of the rapist, rather than the innocence and trauma of the raped children. "


Like I said; he would have done whatever John Paul II asked him to. After many reformations, the Inqusition ( as it is called now, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) lost a lot of its power to act independent of the papacy; in fact, head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith was one of the pope's titles for many years.

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is, pretty much, the church's judicial branch, they investigate crimes in the church and, to an extent, determine the punishments. They also handle any heresy, defrocking and things like that.

/ any decision they make is subject to the pope's approval
