Author and outspoken atheist, Richard Dawkins, has teamed with Christopher Hitchens and a group of lawyers who are determined to charge Pope Benedict XVI with crimes against humanity for his compliance in covering up sex abuse scandals in the Catholic Church!
"This is a man whose first instinct when his priests are caught with their pants down is to cover up the scandal and damn the young victims to silence."
So true. Absolutely disgusting.
He and his team believe that Benedict will not be able to use diplomatic immunity because he is not actually a head of state, at least by United Nations standards.
Wow. It will certainly be interesting to see how this all plays out.
What do U think?? Should the Pope face charges because of his past actions??
