GLOBAL NAZI PANIC

Headlines via Google News:

From Nazi Germany to the balcony of St Peter’sSydney Morning Herald

Nazi Pope: Joseph RatzingerConspiracy Planet. Story contains this: “A well-informed author on the topic of the Vatican, is reportedly coming out with a well put together book, showing that the late Pope John Paul 2nd worked for the Nazi Gestapo in Poland during World War Two. He rounded up Polish Resistance Fighters and turned them over to the Nazis who had them shot, so the book contends.”

New Pope’s Nazi link worries Israeli JewsHindustan Times, via AP. Story neither quotes nor names any worried Israelis.

Pope was in Hitler YouthThe Age. That’s the headline captured by Google; it’s since been changed by The Age to “Local Jews dismiss Pope’s Nazi link”.

In Germany, mood is hardly one of celebrationThe Independent. Much sadness: “Liberal Germany reacted with a collective sigh of dismay yesterday to the news of Cardinal Ratzinger’s election as the first German pope for more than 400 years.”

New Pope’s Past Leaves Some Jews UneasyWBAL. The only Jew quoted in the story, Art Abramson, the leader of the Baltimore Jewish Council, isn’t left uneasy at all: “I discovered that this is a man who has been a great friend to the Jewish people and was instrumental in ensuring that there would be reconciliation with the Jews and that Israel would receive full diplomatic recognition from the Vatican.” But teenagers in Philadelphia are acting like journalists or something:

Students left the school telling each other “the new pope is a Nazi.”

Among other reactions, here’s Ken Parish:

The Catholic Church, which I joined full of hope and incomplete piety in the mid-1980s, will continue to be predominantly a force for evil ...

And from the kids at Daily Kos:

It’s a great day to be a Nazi.

... we didn’t start this war, that f***ing Nazi did. People can pray all they want for their church and the antichrist who has just taken over.

If you’re not IRATE, you’re not paying attention. What’s worse, attacking a sovereign country that was no threat to anyone and killing a hundred thousand innocent people while making the rest of the world hate you even more, or telling A BILLION CATHOLICS THAT CONDOMNS CAUSE AIDS!?????!!!!?!?! F** the Roman Catholic Church.

“Condomns” are condemned condoms; precisely that which the Pope advocates! Over at The Guardian, Ratzinger’s Reich is hailed by all:

This guy, Ratzinger, oozes nothing but ambition and moral arrogance. God help us all.

I’ll certainly sleep better tonght knowing that a former Hitler Youth will be lording over the world’s 1.1bn Catholics.

If this panzer cardinal is now to be known as the panzer pope, one would assume he shall be using a local Italian tank on the religious front - a machine widely known for its swift retreat.

He has a wonderful cadaverous pallor..how fitting.

Send some vicious and hatefilled correspondance to our dear Church Leaders - God bless public domain email lists.

Lovely…just what the world needs…another religious right winger.

As we glide back to the 12th century with a Hitler youth leader at the helm, I cringe.

Bush in the White House, Wolfowitz at the World Bank, Blair in No 10, Ratzinger in the Vatican… Can anyone think of any more obnoxious right wing extremists currently ruling the world? This just defies optimism. Fuck fuck fuck.

Can anyone think of any more obnoxious right wing extremists currently ruling the world? This just defies optimism.

Right wing child abusers are thrilled.

this just further prooves that there is no god.

Once a Nazi, always a Nazi.

Any little choirboys in his closet?

This man is Evil! I felt no love, compassion, understanding from JPII; this ex-Nazi is far worse.

This will lead to millions of deaths if the Catholic church does not take action.
