Papal Bull

September 16, 2010

The pope is trying to get the Brits on side by reminding them that they “won the war”. (Admittedly they did it by changing sides and joining forces with Stalin, abandoning the whole of eastern Europe to that killer of 50 million, but let’s not bring that up at this time.)

The pope, CEO of one of the biggest businesses on earth, needs to distract attention from his complicity in running a global pedophile ring, so what better way than to assert that his only detractors are atheists, and that the Nazis were atheists. Therefore, anyone who is against him is a Nazi, and the British defeated the Nazis, so the British defeated atheism, therefore any poms who don’t like him are committing treason.

Not only the tawdry manoeuvre of a desperate villain, but it’s also factually wronger than wrong. He speaks of:

….Nazi tyranny that wished to eradicate God from society…

Maybe the former Hitler Youth member has forgotten exactly what was going back then.

Fairly close to where I live, here in Berlin, there’s a church which was being completed just as the Nazis seized power. Here’s a picture of one of the releifs that has been preserved from 1936.

Care to explain, Mr Pope, just why a Nazi soldier is depicted as one of Christ’s disciples?

Why also did they immediately close down the athiestic Free Thought Society, with more than half a million members, and eventually have the chairman, Max Sievers, beheaded?

I also recall the regime’s attitude to Christian pastors and religious who spoke the truth in love, opposed the Nazis and paid for that opposition with their lives.

And who the hell are you, Ratzi protector of pedophiles, to invoke the memory of those Christians who died resisting the Nazis? You apologist for creeps who don’t even resist their own urges to defile children.

And before you go casting Nazis as atheists and Christians as resisters, please discuss the photos below the fold.

Update: Thanks Jimmy Blue (see comments) for pointing out this photo of the youthful Ratzinger, which I posted earlier, has been cropped

Here’s the original:

And just for the record, here’s the England Football team in Berlin in 1936:

….Bunch of atheists!

In any case, it is clear that all this Nazi=atheist propaganda has been aimed purely at diverting attention from the child abuse scandal. It has worked. Ratzinger is without doubt the first former Hitler Youth ever to pull an argumentum ad Nazium.

  1. Nice post Yakaru, I’m waiting for the weekend to get my take on this up, already had a rant on Facebook about it as a warm up. Especially like the photos but I have to ask what you meant by this:

    Admittedly they did it by changing sides and joining forces with Stalin, abandoning the whole of eastern Europe to that killer of 50 million


  2. You might want to rethink the photo of Ratzinger though, just noticed it is actually a cropped image:

    <A HREF="http://www.remnantofgod.org/ratzingersalute.htm&quot; rel="nofollow" <Ratzinger salute

    Never mind the source is a whackjob too, the photo is a cropped image.


  3. Oh good grief, can’t do anything right today, that link should be:

    Ratzinger salute


  4. Thanks for the note about the last photo. I posted this quickly late at night and didn’t take the time to check up on it. I found it posted on several sites which seemed reasonably legit, but that doesn’t really count as cross referencing, I guess.

    The “changing sides” stuff? Hmmm, yes I did write that, didn’t I. Largely irrelevant to the post, and maybe too cryptic to warrant inclusion. I meant it in the same sense that Norman Davies (the Oxford historian) said that the Allies “sided with a wolf to beat a jackal”.

    Certainly Germany “switched sides” and attacked Russia, but that doesn’t automatically negate the fact that Britain entered the war over the invasion of Poland, and eventually “changed sides” and formed an alliance with the other invader of Poland.

    I don’t mean necessarily that they should have fought on and tried to drive back Stalin’s army, inflicting even more misery on eastern Europe. But I do think that this tendency of labelling people Nazis for rhetorical purposes is based squarely on post war propaganda that still hasn’t been properly revised.

    An awful lot of history gets smothered by the rhetorical use of Nazism as a label for particular groups, and I’m interested in both stopping the idiotic labelling, and also trying to bring out some of (what I think are) the facts that get concealed or distorted.

    And implying all that in a paranthetic aside at the start of this post, is maybe a bit of a stretch….


  5. Alright, I’ll let you off then since I don’t disagree with any of that, especially the stuff about people over using and misusing the term Nazi. Not every German was a Nazi, not every Nazi was a German and not everyone involved in atrocities committed by the Axis powers was a Nazi – that last is the one thing most often over looked.

    Churchill was well aware of the dubious advantage of siding with Stalin though, he even said in reference to this:

    “If Hitler invaded hell I would make at least a favorable reference to the devil in the House of Commons.”

    And as the war drew to a close Churchill DID argue for going after the USSR as well and was never happy with abandoning Eastern Europe to Stalin.
