A typical whinge from the Atheists on the Pope's "Thought for the Day" broadcast.
The National Secular Society described the Pope's broadcast as a slap in the face because it gave him access to the "unquestioned, unchallengeable Thought for the Day slot." "(It) may be a coup for the BBC, but it is a slap in the face for the thousands of clerical abuse victims who are still waiting for justice," it said on its website.
I just wish that this lot would get a life and leave the matter of religious faith to those who enjoy it or find it helpful. Yes, clerical abuse is awful and the RC Church has behaved dreadfully and institutionally. But dammit all, Benedict wanted to do summat when he was at the CDF and has made genuine inroads into addressing the problem. These whining nihilists have unpleasantly inherited the mantle of Cromwell's Puritans and are as joyless, self-satisfied and damnably priggish as the Puritans. Annoying and disgusting as I find some of the barmier "Christian" theologies around, these dour prigs keep me firmly out of the atheist camp!
