Could Pope Benedict Be Going A Bit Bonkers Too?
First, we'd like to make a few things clear.
We are agnostic.
But we weren't always.
In fact, we still see the 'gospels' as great - though we definitely do not 'do' dogma..
We are not anti any religion.
However, we are anti ALL fundamentalists, extremists and/or zealots - whatever their religion, sect, cult, race, gender, sexual orientation, colour, political beliefs, their nationality and/or whatever.
Including, incidentally, any intolerant, immoderates immersed amongst mainstream atheists
Also, it's our personal opinion that infallibility is an impossibility.
Further, we strongly believe in both the absolute right of free speech, as well as the right to possess a healthy and harmless sense of humour.
And by the way and for what it's worth, our own mother's family were Irish Catholics while our father's family were Scottish Protestants.
As their offspring, we sincerely believe ourselves to be totally fair, balanced, truthful and tolerant.
Clear where we're coming from?
Now that we've gotten all that out of the way, we want to say this.
After what he recently said regarding Islam, then insisting that this trip of his to (98% Sunni Muslim), Turkey still takes place -- we believe the man shown above must be (at least, a little bit), mad.
Hopefully, the malady's merely temporary.
We sincerely hope so.
Honest to 'you know you'.
