I couldn't decide on a heading for this, so you get two: 1. "Pope… - don't let the bastards grind you down.
I couldn't decide on a heading for this, so you get two:

1. "Pope Benedict XVI wants you to know that there is another side of the force. A stronger, darker side."

2. "Pope Benedict XVI then grabbed his papal signet and exclaimed 'My Precious!' before running towards the balcony with a maniacal grin on his face"

Dude is an ugly motherfucker.

Some "highlights" of his career so far in the vatican:

He wrote a letter of advice to U.S. bishops on denying communion to politicians who support abortion rights, which some observers viewed as a slam at Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kerry. He publicly cautioned Europe against admitting Turkey to the European Union and wrote a letter to bishops around the world justifying that stand on the grounds that the continent is essentially Christian in nature. In another letter to bishops worldwide, he decried a sort of feminism that makes women "adversaries" of men.
In 1981, John Paul II appointed Ratzinger to his current post as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Vatican's guardian of orthodoxy.
He is a lightning rod for church liberals who see the hierarchy as reactionary. Ratzinger was active in stamping out liberation theology, with its emphasis on grass-roots activism to fight poverty and its association with Marxist movements.

He once called homosexuality a tendency toward "intrinsic moral evil" and dismissed the uproar over priestly pedophilia in the United States as a "planned campaign" against the church.

Someone on another message board had that picture up with a caption that read: "must...eat...Jews."

I thought that was funny and so did Jesus.

Is it my imagination or does he look like an old Man-servant Hecubus from The Kids in the Hall.

If it's not my imagination, then he truly is EVIL!
