Hitch on The Pope.

On Not Mourning the Pope – Thoughts over the grave of John Paul II. By Christopher Hitchens

On the many apologies of John Paul II:
“They are and were admissions that the Roman Catholic Church has been responsible for the retarding of human development on a colossal scale. ”

His summation:
“For us, this day is only the interment of an elderly and querulous celibate, who came too late and who stayed too long, and whose primitive ideology did not permit him the true self-criticism that could have saved him, and others less innocent, from so many errors and crimes.”

Oh, he’s going to hell for that one.
