Michael Nugent found ten reasons to be pleased that Pope Benedict is resigning. He explained elaborately the ten reasons he gave.
1.He has international political influence through the Vatican
2.His Vatican works with Islamic States to oppose gay rights
3.He blames atheism for Nazi Germany and lack of virtue
4.His Catholic Church claims that atheists are not fully human
5.He protects the Vatican ahead of child sex abuse victims
6.He blames secularisation for priests raping children
7.His Vatican compares child sex abuse with ordaining women
8.He offered free plenary indulgences to Lourdes pilgrims
9.He is skeptical that there were donkeys in the crib
10.He silences priests who want a more democratic church
With or without Islamic States the Vatican is against gay rights, because the bible is against gay rights. He blames atheism for Nazi Germany because he is ignorant like many people in the world who believe Hitler was an atheist and he killed Jews in the name of atheism. I can well understand why his Catholic Church claims that atheists are not fully human, because God hates atheists and Church based of myths and hypocrisies is threatened by no one but atheists. The biggest crime the Pope committed by protecting Vatican ahead of child sex abuse victims. He blames secularization for priests raping children. He has to, because priests must to be saved. They are authorized to perform the sacred rites of religion especially as a mediatory agent between humans and God. Whatever they do, rape or murder, they must be saved in order to save God’s ass. He silences priests who want a more democratic church, he does it because he knows religion is not compatible with democracy. If religion evolves or if it supports democracy, human rights, and equal rights between men and women, it will not be religion anymore. Religion’s purpose is to keep people in the darkness of ignorance, promote injustices and inequalities. Religion doesn’t evolve, people evolve. We do not have to force it to evolve or pretend that it evolved. We enlightened evolved people need to reject religion to make the world a better place.
