Pope: Catholics Must ‘Stand Firm’ Against Attacks By ‘Intolerant Agnosticism’

by David Badash on January 6, 2013

in News,Religion

Pope Benedict XVI today said Catholic leaders must “stand firm” against attacks by “extremely intolerant… agnosticism.”

“Anyone who lives and proclaims the faith of the Church is on many points out of step with the prevalent way of thinking, even in our own day,” the Pope, who was addressing “about 10,000 people in St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City,” admitted. “Today’s regnant agnosticism has its own dogmas and is extremely intolerant regarding anything that would question it and the criteria it employs,” Benedict claimed.

The Pope, who in 2011 actually praised agnostics as “pilgrims of truth, pilgrims of peace” who “ask questions of both sides” and “take away from militant atheists the false certainty by which these claim to know that there is no God and they invite them to leave polemics aside and to become seekers who do not give up hope in the existence of truth and in the possibility and necessity of living by it” apparently now feels intolerant to anyone or anything that challenges any aspect of Catholic dogma.

The Pope did not give specific examples or name names of whom he sees as “intolerant agnostics,” but, at least in the United States, the Catholic Church is losing converts daily, and the “fastest growing ‘religious’ group in America is made up of people with no religion at all, according to a Pew survey showing that one in five Americans is not affiliated with any religion,” reported CNN in October.

Indeed, rampant, “extremely intolerant .. regnant agnosticism” is responsible for… nothing, whereas “extremely intolerant .. regnant” religiosity is responsible for hate crime murders, anti-gay attacks, a reduction in access to healthcare, a reduction in women’s access to contraception services, the inability of same-sex couples to get married. The list goes on and on.

In a Christmas address to the College of Cardinals, Pope Benedict unleashed an unhinged assault on all gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people, and gay marriage, and went so far as to state same-sex marriage threatens the “essence of the human creature,” and thus, mankind’s future.

At the link below is the full text of the "Reichskonkordat," the political treaty between the Vatican and Adolf Hitler. At the time this treaty was signed, the anti-Jewish racial laws were already in force in Nazi Germany:
Here is an example of what is in the treaty:
Article 3
In order to foster good relations between the Holy See and the German Reich, an apostolic nuncio will reside in the capital of the German Reich and an ambassador of the German Reich at the Holy See. http://www.concordatwatch.eu/showkb.php?org_id=85

We need clarity in public understanding of the criminal Catholic Church's motivations. Worldwide, the Church still has a business plan of stigmatizing gays and lesbians in society, in order to get enough of them to sign up for lifetimes of near slave labor as low-level priests and nuns. That is how the rotting, corrupted turds at the top of the Church hierarchy continue to live off the fat of the land. Without that cheap labor from priests and nuns, the "leaders" could not live as they do; and they do continue to 1) encourage over-reproduction; and 2) stigmatize gays and lesbians, because those two things help them trap victims in lifetimes of near slave labor. Then we also need clarity of public understanding about what the Catholic Church did to homosexuals before and during the era of the Holocaust. There were as many gay victims of the Holocaust as there were, because of the Church's involvement in demonizing them and getting them deported to concentration camps. All over Europe, you can find memorials to the gay victims — but the Catholic Church has never acknowledged its role in getting those gay victims sent to their deaths. We must better organize, to get the rest of society to demand along with us, that the Church acknowledge its role in getting gay Holocaust victims murdered.

The pope should just get it over with and state that anyone who doesn't agree with him on everything is going to hell in a handbasket.

So says the out of touch old man in a dress who reads nothing but an out of touch old book.
I read something somewhere…Beware of a man of just one book.
I took this to mean to beware of people who are uneducated. Most of the educated folks I know do not follow a religion. I have found that educated people tend to question religion and look at it from a different perspective.
The Roman Catholic Church is responsible for the death and destruction of more than any other group. The Catholic Church has lied to and abused children and coved up the problem. People who still claim to be Catholic do not follow much of the outdated "laws" and know about the sexual abuse. Why on earth do they continue to give money to the church? Why would they want to support a business that they don't follow and abuses their kids?

Wasn't Mother Theresa an agnostic herself?

The man is mad. Blaming others for how he has destroyed the chuch. He apparently must have signed off on the kill the gays bill in Uganda, since it was first opposed by the catholic church and now supports it

Combine that with how he UNexcommunicated Bishop williamson, a holocaust deneir in 2009 and we know his youth in the hitler Jugend formed his mind.

No self repecting nation should have diplomatic relations with the VAT of horrors. It should be declared a nazi led group, all its assets siezed all around the world and cut off from all outside contact.

And for good measure lets also extend the statues of limitations re how his sex starved priests raped children all over the world and he directed these vile crimes

BTW Hitler, Himmler,. Mengele, Goebbels, and Eichmann were all catholics. The only one ever EXcommed was Goebbels – he married a protestant. No excuses – the church should have changed canon law if needed to send these monsters to the hell they deserved, but IMO the reason it didnt was it would connect the dots between how the church created the horrors of blaming the Jews for the blood libel and the death of Jesus – a 1500 year hamred that posioned much of Europe, and led to AH's election and the holocsaust

not just of Jews but of gays as well – about 50000. And other minorities eg gypsies.

The pope is just doing what is normal for people who have painted themselves into corners — ranting and screaming and blaming everyone else.

True, he's a little less in touch with reality than most of his ilk — but not really all that much.

The Pope WAS and by all reasoning STILL IS a Nazi…that's all that needs to be said about this SHREW in a dress!
