The Pope Is Preaching To The Wrong Choir.

I guess if I were a Christian, I'd be wondering just who the hell the freaky creep in the flowing robes was telling to "repent," as it seems to me he's known whose hands have been up the altar boys' robes all along...

From the AP/Los Angeles Times:

Pope Benedict XVI referred Thursday to "attacks" on the church stemming from the clerical sexual abuse scandal and said "we Christians" must repent for sins and recognize mistakes, news reports said.
Benedict made the off-the-cuff comments during his homily at a Mass inside the Vatican for members of the Pontifical Biblical Commission, the ANSA news agency reported.
Victims of clerical abuse have long demanded that Benedict take more personal responsibility for clerical abuse. Those demands have intensified in recent weeks as the Vatican and Benedict himself have been accused of negligence in handling some cases.
"I must say, we Christians, even in recent times, have often avoided the word 'repent,' which seemed too tough," ANSA quoted Benedict as saying. "But now under attack from the world, which has been telling us about our sins … we realize that it's necessary to repent, in other words, recognize what is wrong in our lives."

The Catholic Church is "under attack?" Are you f#cking kidding me? Just who is attacking whom?
This guy's been going 'round in circles in the Popemobile way too long...
