Where once the public might have been duped into believing that the moral compass of the religious was faithful and true, it is now painfully apparent that this compass is not only unreliable but has been tossed overboard.
And so we are to see an end to the rule of Joseph Ratzinger at the Vatican. At such times it is usual to break out into a chorus of Ding, Dong the Witch is Dead from The Wizard of Oz, but we fear that Ratzinger's successor will be as bad, if not worse, than the man himself.
Joseph Ratzinger obviously is not infallible; no intelligent person would ever have believed that he was. Worse than that, however, he is now a sinister and retarding force for both religion and gay rights, out of touch with the majority of the faithful and totally unqualified to preach morality.
