Reading a random article about the Pope…
The Pope is visiting Scotland…
He admits there are child molesters within the church hierarchy..
I’ve heard all this before…
There are about 850,000 Catholics in Scotland, according to the 2001 U.K. Census, but 27 percent of Scots — about 1.5 million — did not register a religion or said they were atheists.
Detractors such as the Humanist Society of Scotland believe people are indifferent to the papal visit because of the church scandals and growing secularism.
“The notion that it was the atheism of Nazis that led to their extremist and hateful views or that somehow fuels intolerance in Britain today is a terrible libel against those who do not believe in G.god,” [sic] the group said Thursday in a statement.
The group placed billboards along the route the pope will take between Edinburgh and Glasgow that read: “Two million Scots are good without God.”
How did I not hear about this?!
That. Is. Awesome.
I’m sure the response will be even more vociferous when the Pope gets to England.
