What to say about these two idiots and this ridiculous publicity stunt. The media know that is a publicity stunt but are happy to go along since piling on is all the fashion these days.
LONDON, April 11 (UPI) — Two British atheists say Pope Benedict XVI should be arrested during his visit to Britain for his role in cases of child sex abuse by priests.
The Sunday Times of London reported atheism campaigner Richard Dawkins and author Christopher Hitchens have asked human rights lawyers to draft a case for charging the pope for his alleged cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.
Human rights lawyer and United Nations judge Geoffrey Robertson wrote in The Guardian the pope should be tried for allegedly protecting predator priests.
“The Holy See can no longer ignore international law, which now counts the widespread or systematic sexual abuse of children as a crime against humanity,” Robertson wrote.
In September, Benedict is to visit London, Glasgow and Coventry, where he plans to beatify 19th-century Cardinal John Henry Newman.
They compare the arrest of the Pope to the arrest of Pinochet. I suppose if you are an atheist and a jerk, character assassination is no big deal.
If either one of these jackasses happens to visit Long Island, I will perform a citizens arrest. The charge? Asshattery.
