Pope Benedict XVI has preached against hatred and prejudice, not remotely appreciating the irony of him doing so:
“I urge people of goodwill in both communities to repair the damage that has been done, and in fidelity to our common belief in one God, the father of the human family, to work to build bridges and find the way to a peaceful coexistence,” he said.
“Let everyone reject the destructive power of hatred and prejudice, which kills men’s souls before it kills their bodies.”
Says the arch homophobe who says that condoms are part of the problem in dealing with HIV, and that gay people are responsible for environmental destruction. Quite, quite mad.
