Pope Benedict XVI goes to war with ‘atheist extremism’

Filed under: Uncategorized — moderator @ 9:30 pm

Benedict XVI used the first papal state visit to Britain today to launch a blistering attack on “atheist extremism” and “aggressive secularism”, and to rue the damage that “the exclusion of God, religion and virtue from public life” had done in the last century.

The leader of the Roman Catholic church concluded a speech, made before the Queen and assembled dignitaries at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, with the argument that the Nazi desire to eradicate God had led to the Holocaust and a plea for 21st century Britain to respect its Christian foundations.

  1. He is expressing deep sorrow because he was caught covering up these scandals. If this was never brought to the surface and the vatican was never exposed he would still be keeping tight lipped as if nothing was happening. Its far too late to apologize
