Richard Dawkins roasts the Pope

As you may have heard, the Pope visited the U.K., the first papal visit there since 1982.

Shortly upon arrival in Edinburgh, "Ratzinger" criticized atheism, blaming it for the actions of Hitler. Here's how atheist activist Richard Dawkins responded:

Take that Ratzinger! Hitler was an atheist, ha ha ha. Now what religion was he raised in?

Well B.G., I see you must be terribly outraged at pedagogue's attack on
your precious beliefs.
I kid, I kid.
Seriously though, Dawkins eviscerates the vatican.
Great video, thanks for sharing!

Jesus does the Vatican even have a leg to stand on anymore? For an organization mired in so much shit you'd think at some point they'd learn to stop flinging it at others and start digging themselves out.

I tend to think that Dawkins is generally a little heavy handed in his approach, but he's dead on center here. The Vatican being foolish as usual. I can't believe people still adhere to the Catholic Church after all it's various transgressions.

I can't stand this Pope.

He NEVER smiles. And in truth, what has he done to help the World lately???

For anyone paying attention, the vatican eviscerates itself.

I too, was raised catholic, but decided it was all crap. What I didn't realize, until seeing a youtube video by Zjemptv, (hope I got that right), was that I actually need to go through a formal process called de-conversion, to actually not be counted by the church as a member, regardless of the fact that I no longer go, or believe. So now, if I start caring anytime soon, I'll have to write a letter to a bishop to be withdrawn from the rolls.
