Pope warns of attacks from “intolerant agnostics”.

Awwww, the Pope is upset about Catholicism being attacked by intolerant agnostics.

Pope Benedict said on Sunday that Roman Catholic leaders must have the courage to stand up to attacks by “intolerant agnosticism” prevalent in many countries.

Hell, if you think that agnostics are harsh, check out what atheists are saying about the Catholic church.  What do these attacks look like?

The pope and the Church have come under increased attack because of their opposition to homosexual marriage and women priests. The pope has repeatedly denounced what he says are attempts to push religion out of public debate.

Seriously?  The Catholic church, especially the Pope, has gone out of their way to demonize a whole demographic and to deprive them of equality.  Hell, in Uganda, the Pope blessed the legislators who want to kill gay people.  Now you call it an attack when people condemn the church’s attempts to lessen the quality of life of others?  Fuck you.

Opposition to intolerance is not intolerance, and defense is not an attack.
