Fuck the motherfucker, again

Podría añadir esto a la entrada anterior, pero merece una entrada aparte.

Hoy el Papa ha dicho, entre otras cosas:

Even in our own lifetime, we can recall how Britain and her leaders stood against a Nazi tyranny that wished to eradicate God from society and denied our common humanity to many, especially the Jews, who were thought unfit to live. I also recall the regime’s attitude to Christian pastors and religious who spoke the truth in love, opposed the Nazis and paid for that opposition with their lives. As we reflect on the sobering lessons of the atheist extremism of the twentieth century, let us never forget how the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life leads ultimately to a truncated vision of man and of society and thus to a “reductive vision of the person and his destiny” (Caritas in Veritate, 29).

No tengo nada más que añadir a la respuesta que ya ha dado Richard Dawkins:

This statement by the pope, on his arrival in Edinburgh, is a despicable outrage. Even if Hitler had been an atheist, his political philosophy was not based upon atheism and had no connection with atheism. Hitler was arguably (and by his own account) a Roman Catholic. In any case he enjoyed the open support of many of the most senior catholic clergy in Germany and the less demonstrative support of Pope Pius XII. Even if Hitler had been an atheist (he certainly was not), the rank and file Germans who carried out the attempted extermination of the Jews were Christians, almost to a man: either Catholic or Lutheran, primed to their anti-Semitism by centuries of Catholic propaganda about ‘Christ-killers’ and by Martin Luther’s own seething hatred of the Jews. To mention Ratzinger’s membership of the Hitler Youth might be thought to be fighting dirty, but my feeling is that the gloves are off after this disgraceful paragraph by the pope.

I feel like bombarding every newspaper in Britain with letters of protest.

letters@guardian.co.uk

letters@thetimes.co.uk

letters@independent.co.uk

The trick to getting letters published is to keep them BRIEF as well as literate and correctly punctuated.

I am incandescent with rage at the sycophantic BBC coverage, and the sight of British toadies bowing and scraping to this odious man. I thought he was bad before. This puts the lid on it.

Lo dicho, fuck the motherfucker.

PD: Y eso que ayer estuve viendo el video de Phil Plait sobre tratar civilizadamente y sin insultar al creyente como forma de divulgar el escepticismo y el pensamiento crítico, pero hay cosas para las que no hay proselitismo que valga y hace falta desahogarse.

Añado (17/SEP/2010 13h30): Muy bueno, el diagrama de Venn del discurso del Papa.

  1. M’ha sorprès que digui que els nazis eren ateus… Serà que no sap que a la civella del cinturó dels soldats alemanys hi figurava la frase «Gott mit uns»? Ho dubto…

  2. No diu directament que els nazis eren ateus, diu, en pla, que els nazis eren dolents i que, per tant, se separaven de Deu, com se separen de Deu els ateus, que bla, bla, bla.

    De tota manera, que Hitler era ateu és una de les grans fal·làcies que usen els creients contra els ateus. No deixa de ser una argúcia argumental amb poca lògica, rebuscada, amb molta mala llet, i venint de qui ve, amb molta hipocresia i cinisme.

  3. Home, quan diu «a Nazi tyranny that wished to eradicate God from society» no ho diu directament, però poc li falta… i quan diu «the sobering lessons of the atheist extremism of the twentieth century» em sembla que entre d’altres possibles casoso bàsicament està parlant d’ells…

    En definitiva, que és el mateix Sr. Ratzinger qui té una “reductive vision of the person and his destiny”.
