Guru Of World's Catholic Folk Checks Out
File under: Hagiographic Circus
The pope is dead. We can't say we're too upset about that. His thoroughly ignorant policies concerning birth-control, AIDS, women's rights and right-to-life issues insured that years ago. Unfortunately, he's stacked the College of Cardinals with ignorant men just like himself, so we're probably looking at more ridiculously anachronistic social policy and spiritual ignorance pouring out of the Vatican for the next 30 years or so.
