The Audacity of Pope

From Agence France-Presse:
"Pope Benedict XVI, drawing fire over allowing a Holocaust denier into his flock, has found himself in similar hot water with Muslims, native Indians, Poles, gays and even scientists during his nearly four years as pontiff.

This week, the German-born Pope is struggling to mollify Jews after he brought a breakaway ultra-conservative faction back into the fold of the Roman Catholic Church by rescinding the excommunication of four bishops, including one who insists that no one died in Nazi gas chambers."
I'm not much of a Papal issues guy, but don't we have Iranians already denying the Holocaust? Can't we agree that the Nazi's were really good at killing, did it well, did it often, and call it a day?

I guess when the pews start getting empty, you start looking for replacements from the crazy edges. Even the Battlestar Galactica fleet is hanging out with Cylons these days. At least they are blonde... and not sworn to celibacy.

Whole silly story.
