Idiot of the Week - Pope Francis


This weeks idiot is none other than the Pope. He earns this honor by saying that the "The Catholic Church is perhaps the only public institution to have acted with transparency and responsibility. No-one else has done more. Yet the Church is the only one to have been attacked,". This is in response to the allegations of sexual abuse inside the Catholic Church and the Vatican's role in stopping or not stopping said abuse.

Maybe the Pope needs to be reading the newspapers,( link2 , link3, link4) watching the news@8 and reading some books. Hopefully then when he has educated himself he will realize that all the cover ups by the catholic church are the reason people are attacking the church. He would then also see that no one believes the church as they harbor criminals even when they know about them. Paedophilia is rampant in the Catholic Church and I would applaud the Church if they were doing something about it 40+ years ago.

The Catholic Church's voice of god rightfully deserves his title this week, oh and that's not Pope its Idiot of the week.
