The Pope is resigning. Good.

The Pope is resigning.  Good riddance.  He is a positively evil man who has long been more concerned with the Church’s image than with protecting its youngest members from abuse by their spiritual leaders.  He has even more fiercely aligned the Catholic Church with hatred of those who love someone of which the Catholic Church does not approve (read: LGBT people), and has attempted through legislative pressure to assert some presumed god-given control over their lives.

The world would’ve been a better place had Joseph Ratzinger never entered into it.  Few organizations aside from the Catholic Church have sufficiently twisted standards such that a man like Ratzinger could be considered their most exemplary member in terms of wisdom and morality.  They deserved him.  The problem is that the Catholic Church still has influence on the world, and the world deserved better.
