Catholic Pope declares atheists are behind the greatest cruelty

02Dec07

Benedict had to find the ‘greatest’ executor of cruelty so that Catholic priests molesting children won’t have to look so bad.

Benedict probably has forgotten that his church has done its own share of cruelty, atrocities and hate-mongering:

(From Infidel.org)

  1. The Crusades
  2. The Inquisition
  3. The Salem Witch Trials
  4. Exploitation by Missionaries
  5. Anti-semitism

During the Spanish Inquisition, the Catholic Church took great care in torturing ‘sinners’.

Both the inquisitor and the bishop were to be present. The prisoner was to be shown the instruments of torture and urged to confess. Upon refusing he was to be stripped and bound and again entreated to confess and to be promised mercy if he did. He/she would stand bound and naked in the presence of grim, implacable friars and watch the irons heated, the pulleys of the rack tested, the bearings of the wheel greased in preparation for their use on his own bones and body.

It’s also interesting to take note that Benedict’s predecessor has apologized for the sins of his flock.

Lying to people about going to “paradise” after they die as long as they cater to your fancies and whims is for me the greatest cruelty.

Thanks to Truemors.
