Suffice to say that while I was pleased that Pope Benedict has recognized child molestation as "gravely immoral behavior" (I think most of us are on board with that one), I can't say I was all that impressed with his comments around the various RCC sex scandals.

"Many of you have spoken to me of the enormous pain that your communities have suffered when clerics have betrayed ... their obligations. It is vitally important that the vulnerable are always shielded from souls who would cause harm."


Safe to that we all have an "obligation" not to rape children. With you on that one too, Joey Ratz. But the RCC has failed in to shield the vulnerable from souls who would cause harm by concealing evidence, failing to report these crimes to the police, paying off victims, and shuffling pedophile priests from one parish to another.

Eaten all the tasty young dishes on the menu, Father? OK. Here's another menu.

"Rape schmape. What am I supposed to do about it?"

How about some nice excommunications and jail time?

Some of the reasons for why I’m going to hell:

Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts
(sound bites blessedly devoid of Trent’s whining)

Burial - Burial
(dubstep mastery)

Bjork - Telegram
(the pixie gets revamped and renewed)

Nitzer Ebb - That Total Age
(auld skool)

Redman - Whut? The Album
(funk doc in da house)
