Prattle from Ratzinger

On a visit to Latin America, Ratzinger tries to feign credibility when he attacks both Marxism and Capitalism, but in the end strikes out at the local native religions:
“The utopia of going back to breathe life into the pre-Columbus religions, separating them from Christ and from the universal church, would not be a step forward; indeed, it would be a step back” and “a retreat towards a stage in history anchored in the past.”
When all else fails, run to the arms of good ol' Saint Columbus. With Saints like this, who needs Satan?

I never fail to find it amusing that the Pope, soi-disant God's representative on Earth, has so little faith in his God that he has to travel in a bullet-proof glass box when giving his flocks a darshan!

I didn't think that anyone disputed the fact that the Europeans inflicted genocide on the indigineous populations of the New World (and Africa for that matter).

Moreover, the destruction of the records the Mayan, Aztec, and Inca records by the Catholic Church has been a significant loss to humanity.
