What Pope Francis said: “The Lord created us in His image and likeness.”

Well see. Right there, Pope Francis is full of it. There is no proof of an omniscient omnipotent benevolent creator and even if there was, there’s no proof said creator is a biped carbon based life form with two eyes two ears one nose a belly button, and sporadic body hair.

“..all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not do evil.” Again there’s no proof to this claim. There ARE however countless examples throughout history and in the daily newspaper that disagree most stridently with this assumption on the part of the alleged leader of the catholic church. People do bad things all the time, and bad things happen to good people, and bad people do good things, and what might be right for you might not be right for some others. I mean if someone you love needs an operation you can’t afford, and nobody’s using all that money sitting in that stupid bank anyway, then from your perspective robbing from that no good bank to save your loved one from pain and death sounds like a good proposition. Good and bad are subjective concepts that are not constant. They are very subjective and circumstantial. We human beings like to imagine there is an absolute measure of good and evil, but even if there were, it’s unfair to judge people on that absolute measure when they can’t see the forest for the trees. It’d be like the IRS demanding every ant colony inside the confines of the United States fill out annual income tax forms or be subject to confiscation of life and property. They ARE US citizens after all. Why do ants get to live here tax free? Stupid buggers.

“The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class! We are created children in the likeness of God and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all! And we all have a duty to do good. And this commandment for everyone to do good, I think, is a beautiful path towards peace.”

OK so what the big cheese padre is failing miserably to say is that everyone was allegedly made by his imaginary friend so we are all like this presumed god and therefore by default we’re going to do good instead of evil, cuz Frankie’s invisible master is benevolent and has never done anything wrong. Again, he can’t prove this, and the Bible itself (the only ‘actual’ proof of this alleged god, which by the way isn’t proof cuz it’s a work of fiction written by goat herders who had been eating too many strange mushrooms) proves his god to be a selfish arrogant vindictive petty tyrant who will turn your wife into salt if she threatens to talk back.

So his god will forgive all atheists, provided they stop this foolish thinking for themselves and go back to believing without proof and doing whatever the roman catholic church tells them to do.

Frankly, Frankie. I honestly don’t see why anyone listened to your predecessors in the first place, and I really don’t get why people are listening to you now. I’d demand you kiss MY ring, but I purposefully don’t wear rings. They slow down my typing.

So kiss my keyboard, padre. Dobbs‘ bless us, everyone!

Faith and Reason

Always ready to jump at the opportunity for a juicy headline, the media’s recent leap was propelled by the words of Pope Francis regarding the redemption and seeming salvation of atheists. Taken out of context, a comment like the Pope made has the potential to create a whirlwind of controversy. Atheists would, quite smugly, turn to Catholics and point out that even the leader of the Church, the Vicar of Christ, believes they will go to heaven. Catholics on the other are left wondering how it is that those who openly and blatantly reject God in this life could ever have the possibility of salvation in the next life.

Let’s consider the context of the controversial words. They were said in a homily at a Mass on May 22. These were the readings of the day. The Old Testament reading came from Sirach 4:11-19. It was the Gospel reading (Mark…
