The Pope's an Atheist? Who Knew?

Joe "The Rat" Ratzinger, a.k.a. Pope Benny Ex Vee Eye, has compared "atheist extremism" with Naziism.  From BBC News:

The pontiff praised Britain's fight against the Nazis - who "wished to eradicate God" - before relating it to modern day "atheist extremism".



Afterwards his spokesman Federico Lombardi said: "I think the Pope knows rather well what the Nazi ideology is".

Now ol' Joe indeed "knows rather well what the Nazi ideology is."  He was a member of the Hitlerjungend at 14 and later blasted away at allied bombers as a flak gunner in Munich before deserting at the end of the war.  I guess you don't have much time for bible thumping when you're thumping away on a Flak 88.

You maybe angry at the libel but it is rather a stretch to imply that the pope was an active Nazi. He maybe many things but a a Nazi was not one of them.

Haw, haw, haw!!! Chernaik...I suggest you do some serious research. The Roman Catholic Church was also responsible for getting many top Nazies out of Germany and on to South America. And you believe in this junk so-called faith??

*sigh*
I'm no fan of this Pope or the catholic church in general, but it's a stretch to imply that he was an active Nazi instead of a kid/person caught up in history.

I'm familiar with the Reichskonkordat... and no, I don't believe in any religion.

Maybe you should do some "serious" research into what role Pope played in WW2...
His father was anti-Nazi and this influenced the family.
Joseph Ratzinger was conscripted at the age of 14 into the Hitler Youth (as was the law)... Yes he "blasted" away but so did many 16 year olds forced into the same situation...

Again Anon troll - maybe you should do some "serious" research instead of regurgitate your prejudices here...
