More New Saints

So Pope Francis is about to bestow Sainthood on Junipero Serra. Seems the qualifications for said honour are rather different from what we've been led to believe!



I wonder when Uncle Adolf and Benito Mussolini will make the short list?

But they only killed heathens and savages, not real people.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I frequent a car enthusiast site where one of the guys is always pushing spirituality and the RCC. He also pushes revisionist history, using comments like "...the RCC held Galileo and Bruno in check...". I got pissed and flamed him, telling the truth of what happened to said individuals, and further pointed out that the RCC is a criminal enterprise. Earned the enmity of some of xtian gobshites there. It's that sort of revisionist shit that gets saints "made". The treatment of the natives on this continent is shameful. Oddly enough, the Boy Scouts here revere the Red Man (this continent's aboriginal) while honoring Baden-Powell for his actions against the aborigines on the African continent.

Have noticed the religious in their "search for truth" - so they can stamp it out!
