Pope Ratzinger, please condemn my book!

One result of the Vatican’s attack on Catholic nun and theologian Sister Margaret Farley and her 2006 book Just Love: A Framework for Christian Sexual Ethics that I wrote about yesterday is that her book shot up in Amazon rankings from #142,982 to #16 just one day after the attacks began.

Frankly, I think I am a much harsher critic of the Catholic Church and the pope than Farley so I am appealing to the pope: Please, please, attack me and my books, as harshly and loudly as you can.

    I don’t think your odds are good -- you’re just a run-of-the-mill Anti-Catholic Screed Writer. Sister Farley is an Uppity Nun Guilty Of Unapproved Thoughts And The Publication Thereof. The pope will certainly denounce her, but the best you’re likely to get is Bill Donohue, and he’ll denounce anybody…

    Plan B: Re-title your book <The Secret Protocols of the Elders of Utah and wait for the fun to begin. Don’t forget to send a copy to Glen Beck (remember him?)

    If you can include some secret details about doings and dealings in the vatican, it’ll definitely make a splash. As we can tell from the recent hue and cry about the papal secretary who was selling secrets to the press: selling secrets bad, fucking the kids in your diocese -- oh, no problem. So raping children wouldn’t get the pope upset but maybe you can reveal something juicy about his underpants or what he does with his hunky hunky personal secretary when they’re closeted in prayer together..

    I just can’t work out how stupid the Vatican’s actions are regarding this book. Surely if you are going to climb to the top of the RCC greasy pole you have to have some sort of evil cunning at least. This book was published six years ago and hardly anyone has paid it the slightest bit of attention. Ratty decides to make a stink about it and it is an instant best seller. How difficult was that to predict?
