A Couple of Religious Notes

Note 1: Let's play word association, shall we? Vatican = Pope = holy = trusted aides = homosexual prostitution ring. Doesn't exactly have a ring to it, does it? But that's what we've got here. Italian police who were wiretapping on another matter entirely intercepted conversations between Angelo Balducci, a Gentleman of His Holiness, that is, a member of the pope's bevy of ceremonial ushers, guys really close to the pontiff. Are you ready for this? Balducci was one of the pallbearers for funeral of Pope John Paul II. Carried his coffin. What you're not ready for is the transcripts of Balducci "negotiating with Thomas Chinedu Ehiem, a 29-year-old Nigerian Vatican chorister, about men he wanted brought to him for sexual purposes." Apparently, Balducci was quite explicit about physical details of the guys he wanted. Nice, eh?

Note 2: Is there no end to the idiocy of Glenn Beck? And the perfidy of this man? Millions of people too dumb or blinded by fury to know what sense is, hang on this creep's every word. Here's the latest stream of evil shit issuing from his mouth: he's telling his viewers that they should immediately leave their church if they hear the words "social justice" being preached or urged. Because these words don't mean what they say, they are code words for communism(!) and Nazism(!!).  How much more idiotic can one be? But as I've stated so many times before, creatures like Beck influence millions of people. He stokes their hatreds every day, along with all his other colleagues on Fox news.

You need to hear it from his own lips, and I quote:

I'm begging you, your right to religion and freedom to exercise religion and read all of the passages of the Bible as you want to read them and as your church wants to preach them . . . are going to come under the ropes in the next year. If it lasts that long it will be the next year. I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words. Now, am I advising people to leave their church? Yes! 

Communists are on the left, and the Nazis are on the right. That's what people say. But they both subscribe to one philosophy, and they flew one banner. . . . But on each banner, read the words, here in America: 'social justice.' They talked about economic justice, rights of the workers, redistribution of wealth, and surprisingly, democracy.
Later, Beck held up cards, one with a hammer and sickle and other with a swastika. Listen, there's a religious word for this kind of unmitigated evil. Sin. And that's what this is, sin. If there is a hell, there's a special place in it for guys like Glenn Beck. But let us leave room for charity, we can acquit Beck of moral culpability if he's a lunatic . . . and that's a strong possibility, too. However, I'm going to resist the urge to charity . . . I hope the son of bitch burns in hell.

Update I: Rev James Martin, SJ, the editor of America magazine, blasts Beck saying he's basically telling people to leave Christianity, not to mention of course attacking hundreds of years of Catholic social teaching.
