At home drinking a glass of red on St. Patty’s Day, watching the Blackhawks late on the west coast and reading about the pope. What else is there? Christopher Hitchens really kicks it in this one (title: “The Great Catholic Cover-Up”; sub-header: “The pope’s entire career has a stench of evil about it”). So you can see where this one’s going.
To put in context:
Ratzinger himself may be banal, but his whole career has the stench of evilâ€”a clinging and systematic evil that is beyond the power of exorcism to dispel. What is needed is not medieval incantation but the application of justiceâ€”and speedily at that.
The comments are as entertaining as the article, both the supporters and the dissenters.
