Sometimes even a madman can talk sense

My views on the little fellow in medieval garb, the one and only Josef Ratzinger, who represents the "kafflik division" of the 'God Squad', his holy of hollies, his holiest, his holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, are well known; this little fellow would usher in the inquisition again tomorrow, if he thought he could get away with it and he would certainly find common cause on a number of social issues with the zany Zionists of the settler ilk, Saudi's wierd wahhabi wankers and the self-flagellating Shia, indeed, on mentioning the slightly mad followers of the twelve Imam, appropriately named, "al-Mahdi", I am reminded of the fact that only last year Joe spent three days in a semi-rural retreat operated by Opus Dei, and when it comes to sado-masochism these lads would not be out of place round about "Ashora" time in Karbala or Najaf and if you think I am exaggerating, how about the following little piece on their activities: "While supernumeries offer small "mortifications", or discomforts, such as keeping the heating low or forgoing sugar in their teach, numerarires of both sexes induc physical discomfort by wearing a cilice - a wire band round the thigh which irritates the skin - often for an hour each day, and by whipping themselves with a knotted rope, known as "the discipline" once a week."(1) Aye, nothing like a wee bit of discipline! The point is, the wee man in the medieval garb is not someone anyone should be taking too seriously. However, this wee man is taken seriously by lots and lots of people and even when it comes to his holiness, the number one "kafflik" Josef Ratzinger, I am tempted to go along with Bob Dylan when he said something about some of the people being right some of the time and there was Joe upsetting our zany Zionists by saying during a speech in Bethlehem, "The Holy See supports the right of your people to a sovereign Palestinian homeland in the land of your forefathers, secure and at peace with its neighbors, within internationally recognized borders."(2) Yes, some of the people are right some of the time and even Joe doesn't always talk crap.
