Pope nazi speaks up.......

pope nazi (or pope benedict to the faithful) spouted off this week regarding harry potter. apparently harry potter books corrupt the young. he believes the harry potter books subtly seduce young readers and "distort christianity in the soul" before it can develop properly, according to comments attributed to him by a german writer. the german writer, gabriele kuby, a devout catholic (need i say more), had written a book called "harry potter-good or evil" which attacks j.k. rowling's books, published extracts from two letters sent to her by pope nazi when he was a cardinal thanking her for her critique of the books. the vatican earlier this year condemned "the davinci code" another bestseller. i think the vatican needs to understand the difference between fiction and non-fiction. let me now explain it to the very religious........if you make up a story its called fiction. stories in this category would include "the davinci code" or the harry potter series and in the truest sense the bible. just to show how out of touch the vatican is the sixth harry potter book set a new record for sales over the last weekend selling 250k books an hour on the average. the record it broke was from the fifth harry potter book. maybe this shows that there is hope for the world by not paying attention to religious kooks. lets be honest , pope nazi, learned all about book burning in the hitler youth in his younger days. so hears a letter to the vatican.....


dear vatican,
please leave everyone alone and stay out of peoples minds. old men like you have no idea whats going on in the world and not a clue regarding popular culture. please stick with what you know ie: fleecing the stupid of their cash and molesting altar boys.

your friend in christ,
shoes

The Catholic church, or any organized religion can't help themselves .... Harry Potter IS about witchcraft, and goes against everything Christianity stands for. Regardless of truth.

Just ask the poor women who were put to death in Salem.

how about the ones that are still being put to death in india and africa for witchcraft.

once again ~ people in positions of "authority" need to learn that they do not need to express an opinion on every frickin' thing. They just end up looking like overstrung crazies.

The Catholic Church is the largest CULT in the world. The main-line Protestant churches have lost touch with the Reformation principles. What's left?

You have observed an important distinction between fiction and reality. That distinction is integral to our thought patterns every day, and it is part of how we define sanity. Would you care to explain how you justify making such a distinction?

I don't know a damned thing about Harry Potter, but when I see a kid with a BOOK in their hand, and I happy, and I couldn't care less what they are READING! Let's think "big picture" here, eh pop-man?!

madman said...

The FUCKING POPE CHAPS my ass. He has got his nerve doing those magic hail mary's and shaking those voodoo roseary beads and chanting all those latin spells. They are a backward fucking cult who will not let their impoverished followers even use a rubber. FUCK YOU POPE-TARD!

pittsley i guess the justification of what i wrote is that things that are made up are fiction and things that can be proved are fact. lets say that i asked you to believe in an imaginary man in the sky and that if youy didnt he would send you to a firey place. you would call that fiction. its not a fact and its the bible story you over religious piece of shit. if you are too fucking stupis to understand than dont read this blog you ignorant cocksucker. i'm sorry maybe thats the 8 beers talking. on second thought ...no its not, your still a douche bag

Pope Nazi knows all about fiction. The Bible he reads everyday. That's right boys and girls that's the biggest piece of fiction anyone could ever read.

I am glad that you took time to read my comments, Mr. Shoes, and I appreciate your response. So you believe that the difference between reality and fiction is that reality is something that can be proven. Two quick points: (1) I find it interesting that you did not care to prove that the distinction between reality and fiction is that reality can be proven. Is that distinction something that we all make up as some sort of crutch so we do not have to believe the spooky stuff we read in Harry Potter books? Or is the distinction between fiction and reality a distinction that exists in reality? You apparently believe that the distinction between fiction and reality is a real (i.e. not fictional) distinction because you assume the reality of the distinction when you call the Bible, The Da Vinci Code, and the Harry Potter books "fiction." If you believed that the distinction between reality and fiction was merely fictional, then all of your ranting would be a little out of place. But if the distinction exists in reality then, by your definition, it must be possible to prove it. That is why I find it interesting that you omitted any sort of proof for the assertion that the provability of reality distinguishes reality from fiction. (2) I wonder what your idea of proof could be. Obviously you are not under the impression that proof is "a neutral presentation of the evidences." You have made absolutely clear that you believe God cannot be proven and that he is, therefore, a fictional character like Harry Potter. You have assumed this before I even said a word to "prove" God's existence. To me this fact implies that you do not believe that proof is neutral. But if your idea of proof is not "a neutral presentation of the evidences," what is it?

Jumpin' Jesus Pittsley. You really like to hear yourself talk don't you?
Do you have any friends? Is your wife deaf?
How can they possibly stand to be anywhere near you for more than 6, maybe 7 seconds before putting a gun to their head?

Hey, Pitt:
