Higher up the food chain

UPDATE: Nope, he actually resigned.

But don’t worry, he’ll still get to vote for the new pope!

LONDON — Britain’s most senior Roman Catholic cleric, Cardinal Keith O’Brien, has been accused of committing “inappropriate acts” in his relations with three priests and one former priest, the newspaper The Observer reported Sunday. The accusations, which date back to the 1980s, have been forwarded to the Vatican.

    Does anyone get the impression that the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church is about to collapse? Pope Benedict is reported to have said just before he resigned that “This Church can not be fixed. It must be taken down.”

    Keith and Bennie will be seen shortly racing jet skis on the Riviera.

    The Catholic church deserves to be taken down. I am amazed so many people, and especially women, cling to this revolting organization. Corrupt banking, forced slave labor in Ireland until 1996, hatred of women, networks of practising homosexuals professing to be celebates, pedophilia, cover-up of pedophilia…it just boggles my mind. I have a couple of very old aunts who converted to Catholicism years ago but I don’t dare tell them my views.

    I fear that the Church will always have sheep, if Sunday was any indication. I attended a Latin Mass, filled with all the pomp and theater surrounding a High Mass, and I was stunned by the large number of people there, and was among the very few who did not “go up” for communion.
