Hitchens’ bigotry is clouding his reporting

Excellent article….

Christopher Hitchens’ venomous attack on Pope Benedict XVI1 is a revelation that deserves wider attention. Were it not for its appearance in the National Post, it would be difficult to believe that a reputable newspaper would publish such absurdity.

He claims that Cardinal Ratzinger imposed a ten year “statute of limitations” on actions against clerical sex offenders, and was thus guilty of “obstruction of justice.”

One thought on “Hitchens’ bigotry is clouding his reporting

  1. I’m not surprised Hitchens wrote obvious lies about the pope. What is surprising is someone would be gullible enough to believe Hitchens is honest or privy to “confidential” letters.

    Hitchens, Dawkins and other radical atheists aren’t about scholarly debate. They are about hate mongering at any cost. Consider the quote from ‘Spike’ a secular magazine “Odious as the physical abuse of children by priests undoubtedly is, [says Dawkins] I suspect that it may do them less lasting damage than the mental abuse of bringing them up Catholic in the first place”.
