The pope has recently released a book that basically likens the Holocaust to aborition. To quote his exact words: "It was a legally elected parliament which allowed for the election of Hitler in Germany in the 1930s..."

"We have to question the legal regulations that have been decided in the parliaments of present day democracies. The most direct association which comes to mind is the abortion laws...

"Parliaments which create and promulgate such laws must be aware that they are transgressing their powers and remain in open conflict with the law of God and the law of nature."

Well, first of all he worries about democratic Parliments being in conflict with God? I think the guy needs to take a reality check: the laws of nature and the laws of God are themselves in open conflict. The Bible states the universe was created six thousand years ago when in fact we know the universe is around thirteen billion years old, the Bible also tells us that Heaven is around five-hundred degrees hotter than Hell, infact the entire basis of the Christian faith is riddled with contradictions.

Is the Pope suggesting that we should we let the Bible (well, ultimately the views of the Vatican) have supremacy over law decided by democratically elected representives? Even if we let the fact slide that the Bible is inconsistent brain-fart, we would at least expect the Pope to learn from history. Has the Pope not learned from the mass genocide carried out in the name of Christ throughout the centuries or is the Pope too blind to look at the other theocracies on this planet that routinely kill non-believers and cruely dispatch the voices of their opposition?

I pull no punches because he pulls no punches. He's attacking our democratic way of living that has taken ten centuries to evolve. It should be no surprise that i'm throughly disgusted with his tone and his thinly veiled comparison between Nazism and abortion. We're talking about the figure head of the most destructive religions in the history on humanity having the audacity to say the democracy has overstepped the mark. Forgive me for laughing out loud.

The democracies of this planet do believe that human law trumps biblical law, and this belief is right and proper. The past has shown us what the Pope's world is like and we would be wise not to tread that path again.
