Catholic Bashing - N.Y.Times Style

Maureen Dowd, one of the many left-wing lunatics writing for the N.Y.Times opinion pages, offers a rant against conservatives today including a predictably venomous attack on the Catholic Church's newly selected Pope. An excerpt from Dowd's vile soliloquy reads as follows:
The white smoke yesterday signaled that the Vatican thinks what it needs to bring it into modernity is the oldest pope since the 18th century: Joseph Ratzinger, a 78-year-old hidebound archconservative who ran the office that used to be called the Inquisition and who once belonged to Hitler Youth. For American Catholics- especially women and Democratic pro-choice Catholic pols- the cafeteria is officially closed. After all, Cardinal Ratzinger, nicknamed 'God's Rottweiler' and 'the Enforcer,' helped deny Communion rights to John Kerry and other Catholic politicians in the 2004 election.

You see, yahoos like Maureen Dowd, were expecting a "modern Pope". You know, one that would ride around the third world in his "Pope-mobile" while tossing condoms to the flock. In fact, such a "modern Pope" might also break with tradition and select a name more in-tune with the times like; "Pope Hefner". Memo to left-wing radicals like Maureen Dowd: if you are hoping to aid the Democratic party in an attempt to endear itself to "Red-State America", you better stop attacking the Holy Father.
