    The man is a German named Ratzinger who looks like Palpatine, was in the Hitler Youth as a child, and has prioritized the Church's silly culture war agenda over peace and alleviating poverty.  It's like God foisted him on the world with a sign on his forehead - "Fuck with me."

    •  Hitler youth (0+ / 0-)

      As a young man growing up in Germany, he was forced to b in the hitler youth, which he ran from when he was 18 and able to abandon this cruel organization.

      Anyone with hatred in their hearts for a persons beliefs be they political, sexual, societal, religious  etc needs to look at themselves in the mirror and question if they would like being ridiculed for their own beliefs.
      I cant imagine getting many "yes" votes there.  Being liberal in our conservative society, is not always easy but I am proud of my beliefs,  as are the people I find out of touch with reality.  But as Americans they are entitled to feel this way.  And we are too.  

      •  I disagree that our society is conservative. (0+ / 0-)

        We are a liberal society with conservative tumors.

        •  Maybe so (0+ / 0-)

          But Fux News and Right wing radio have massive audiences. If we are a liberal society logic would say MSNBC would dominate the ratings.  The SCOTUS is far right, as Obama enters his 2nd term this should shift, maybe he can rewrite the law prohibiting terms and allow him 3+ terms. !!!!
