Did god say anything about buggering little boys?

Apparently god spoke to Benedict and told him to resign…and so he did. It is almost like the Nuremberg defence isn’t it? …”I was ordered to”.

It’s a pity god didn’t speak to him and tell him to sort out the pederast priests.

Former Pope Benedict has said he resigned after “God told me to” during what he called a “mystical experience”, a Catholic news agency reported. 

Benedict, whose formal title is now Pope Emeritus, announced his shock resignation on February 11 and on February 28 became the first pontiff to step down in 600 years.

“God told me to do it,” the Zenith agency quoted Benedict as saying to a visitor to the convent in the Vatican gardens where he is living out his retirement in near isolation.

According to the agency, Benedict told his visitor, who asked to remain anonymous, that God did not speak to him in a vision but in what the former pope called “a mystical experience”.

I can just imagine the priests, when some finally start getting held to account will use the “Benedict Defence”…god asked them to molest children…you might recoil in horror but this is the church that denied abuse occurred, covered it up, blamed it on children and protected dodgy ratbag priests. I wouldn;t put it past them to use that excuse.

    Yes it’s probably time the God defence was put to bed. I was hoping God would tell me tonight’s lotto numbers, alas I’ve had no text yet, I do hope he has my number.

    If he is referring to the God I believe in, then he is wrong and deluded. Of course the devil and mysticism go well together.
