Quote of the Day

[T]he papacy [has been] revealed to have no clothes. For men of the cloth this is surely an indecent revelation to say the least. But indecent is perhaps the best word to describe this monumental anachronism hunkered at the centre of Rome, this medieval theocratic state that is proving itself to be pathologically self-serving, incorrigibly degenerate, and fundamentally amoral. And it is truly amoral. We cannot be blinded by its contrived claims to speak of and for morality.
