22nd September 2010

“The Pope [Benedict XVI] refers to the current global financial crisis being brought about by a lack of ‘a solid ethical foundation for economic activity’. This crisis happened on the watch of deeply religious political leaders such as George W Bush, Tony Blair and Gordon Brown – not ‘aggressive secularists'”

    Benedict blames everything on secularism. In his letter to the Irish following the child abuse scandal he contrived to blame secularism for that as well.

    Who would you blame it on?

  3. tech Says:

    Lets lay the blame where it belongs on the individuals that commit the act, whatever it may be.Religion is nothing more than a cult. I have been accused in the past of defending religions. Thats not true. My beliefs doesn’t need defending nor am I religious.

    He knows very little of the real world, I suspect, seeing everything through the distorting glasses of a pernicious religion (probably a tautology).

    The head of the Vatican bank is currently being investigated by the police for money laundering claims:

    Ha ha. Hit the nail right on the head 🙂 ummmmm, unless of course they (government leaders & what have you) were faking (and not religious at all, just using that) and I suspect that is the REAL truth. Horrid little people.

    Virginia, you may have a very good point there.Real good living people would have nothing to hide.

    Ahh, yes.. Thank you George W. Bush for the lovely aftermath of your administration; the tea-partiers. I’ve never met such a rabble so hell bent to bring the word of God down, while using demon based tactics to do so. I guess America truly is the land of the free for only people that think like them.
