Holy Crap

The Pope is getting on my last nerve. Although I disagreed with Pope John Paul II on social issues, there was a decency behind the man that one could easily respect. I considered the man a good soul. Pope Benedict on the other hand once again is inflaming tensions across religious lines.

The latest outrage was having a virulently anti-semetic priest out to his compound for a photo op session.

Rydzyk, who runs a conservative media empire that includes the Catholic station Radio Maryja, was allegedly caught on tape suggesting that Jews are greedy and Polish President Lech Kaczynski is subservient to Jewish lobbyists.

The remarks allegedly were made in the spring, but they only surfaced in July in the weekly magazine Wprost. Rydzyk has rejected accusations of anti-Semitism and said he "didn't intend to offend anyone."

Yeah, this is helpful.
