All you Need to Know about Pope Benedict

At least according to the bullet points on the BBC news site:

* At 78, one of the oldest new popes in history when elected in 2005

* Born in Germany in 1927, joined Hitler Youth during WWII and was conscripted as an anti-aircraft gunner - but deserted

* As Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, spent 24 years in charge of Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith - once known as the Holy Office of the Inquisition

* A theological conservative with uncompromising views on homosexuality and women priests.

So there you have it, boys and girls.

Once again, in case you forgot; there is no anti-Christian or anti-Catholic bias in the media and if you think there is, it's just your persecution complex.

  1. >> there is no anti-Christian or anti-Catholic bias in the media and if you think there is, it's just your persecution complex.

    In the States the whole media complex (CNN/MSNBC/Hollywood/NYT/WashPo/HuffPo etc.) usually are the ones who play the victim card while accusing Christianity, when Christians stand up for themselves (goodness forbid) - which is rare, for playing that exact same card. Accusing those for what you are doing. Ironic. Amusing.

    Keep up the writing.

  2. Thanks!

    I know that everybody thinks the media is against them, and as long as Christians retain freedom of expression and the right to reply I guess we can't complain too much. But the drip-drip-drip-drip just becomes so irritating sometimes. It's in the litte things more than the big things, I think.
