Pope Benedict To Resign As Head Of The Church.

It looks like the Vatican is going to have to dust off it’s papal retirement package. For the first time in 600 years, the pope has resigned his position. Citing his advanced age and declining health, Pope Benedict XVI announced that he will relinquish his duties as of February 28th. Benedict was elected pope in 2005, after John Paul II elected out of his papal retirement package by dying.

Pope Benedict’s legacy is not so good: his reign was marred by clerical scandals in the Vatican, as well as rampant cases of sexual abuse committed by many of his acolytes. Furthermore, in a time when church laws are continuously criticized as outdated, Benedict doubled down on conservative ideology. His papacy was highlighted by his over the top critical views on subjects such as Islam, homosexuality, and the role of women in the church. As pope, Benedict managed to piss off everybody not named Rick Santorum.

Benedict is the first pope to resign since Gregory XII in 1415. Gregory’s resignation came during a time of scandal as well. His resignation was an effort to end The Western Schism, in which the church was split between two papacies for decades. Gregory’s resignation was in tandem with the Council of Constance, which ended the schism, and resulted in a reunited church under one pope.

The Christian Right is Trying to Chick Fil A The Gay Away.

In addition to serving up lousy chicken, Chick Fil A is serving up a piping hot dish of hatred and bigotry. While many right wing Christians are defending the Cathy family’s right to free speech by showing up in droves to eat some really shitty food, they are either ignoring or covering up the fact that Chick Fil A has contributed millions to Christian hate groups who exist solely to discriminate against the LGBT community.

Since 2003, Chick Fil A’s charitable arm, the WinShape Foundation has donated over 8 million dollars to several anti gay Christian organizations under the pretense of upholding traditional family values. The list is a who’s who of hate groups:

• Marriage and Family Foundation
• Fellowship of Christian Athletes
• National Christian Foundation
• New Mexico Christian Foundation
• Exodus International
• Family Research Council
• Georgia Family Council

In 2010, nearly 2 million dollars was donated by WinShape to these 7 groups, who in turn used the money to promote their homophobia. In addition, Chick Fil A VP Dan Cathy launched his own hate group in 2007: Formerly known as the Marriage and Family Legacy Fund, the Marriage and Family Foundation is a Cathy funded, Cathy led project of the Anti-Gay Marriage CoMission. This coalition of anti marriage equality groups features hate filled homophobic lunatics such as Alan Chambers from Exodus International, and Barry Sheets from Citizens For Community Values: These two men make Rick Santorum look like a progressive!

If Dan Cathy wants to make moronic statements, that is indeed his right. In turn, I as well as many like me have the right to criticize him, as well as not spend our money on his nasty food. However, when the Cathy family has a documented history of promoting hate and inequality, that’s where many of us draw the line. It’s not about the First Amendment in this case: It’s about fighting back against a corporation who so willingly leads the way in the war against a group of people who wish for nothing more than to enjoy a life filled with love and equality.

The Cathy’s are not the victims, they are the oppressors. As such, they deserve to be under attack for their deplorable ideology and actions. They have earned whatever retribution that comes their way.

Maybe we can gay away the Chick-Fil-A ;)

Anders Breivik Went On Trial Today: Pleads Not Guilty

The trial of Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik began Monday morning in Oslo. Although Breivik admitted to the June 22 bombing and shootings that killed 77 people, a defiant Breivik entered a plea of self defense. Breivik stated to the court that ” I admit to the acts, but not criminal guilt.” Breivik insists that his actions were taken against the left wing party of Norway in order to protect the country from multiculturalism and Islam.

Breivik stood before the court with a closed fist salute and stated “I don’t recognize Norwegian courts because you get your mandate from the Norwegian political parties who support multiculturalism.” If declared competent to stand trial, Breivik stands to serve a maximum of 21 years in prison if convicted.

In related news, Mitt Romney is expected to name Breivik as his running mate in the 2012 presidential election. When asked, Romney is rumored to have stated “although Breivik isn’t as hard nosed as Rick Santorum, Anders is the perfect man to help my party close society in this country for good.”

Even though he is no longer a presidential candidate, Mr. Frothy Mix is still determined to keep his name in the spotlight by still more acts of conservative depravity. This time he further raised the bar of ass holiness by registering his three year old terminally ill daughter in the NRA, so that he could score political brownie points with one of the largest conservative voter bases. What a douche.
