Pope to Bush - Go Fudge Yourself

As a Jew, my knowledge of Easter is limited to the idea of children trying to find colorful eggs that a rabbit pooped out of its butt. But I assume that the pope is considered an important figure in the holiday.

From the New York Times:

VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Even on Christianity's most joyous day, Pope Benedict XVI lamented the ''continual slaughter'' in Iraq and unrest in Afghanistan as he denounced ''the thousand faces of violence which some people attempt to justify in the name of religion.''

''Afghanistan is marked by growing unrest and instability,'' Benedict said. ''In the Middle East, besides some signs of hope in the dialogue between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, unfortunately, nothing positive comes from Iraq, torn apart by continual slaughter as the civil population flees.''

I think once the Pope says the war in Iraq is a catastrophuck, it may be time to give it a rest. It's good to see that the highest religious figure in Catholicism also thinks George Bush is an idiot.

The Catholic Church always has been against the war in Iraq. However, they use all their political capital to attack queers, abortion rights, birth control, death with dignity, and stem cell research.

Quite possibly the funniest comic I've ever seen.
