For sheer, unadultered chutzpah, it's hard to beat this quote from Cardinal Renato Martino, a pimp-ass playa str8 outta Da Vatican, who fears that Europe's bigoted Catholic politicians ain't been gettin' nuff respeck from they peeps:
It looks like a new Inquisition. It is a lay Inquisition, but it is so nasty...you can freely insult and attack Catholics and nobody will say anything.
Well, nobody except, perhaps, Cardinal Renato Martino, a high-ranking figure at the Vatican...which is a bully pulpit if there ever was one. Tell it to the Cathars, Renato. Tell it to Giordano Bruno.
Meanwhile, Klaus Schwarzkopf, a 93-year-old former SS officer at the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, condemned Germany's ban against neo-Nazi hate groups. "It looks to me like a new Holocaust," he said, wiping away a tear. "Did we learn nothing about tolerance from that awful crime?"
