Mark Davies: Foolish Catholic Bishop
Blogged by James Preece on 12th April 2012
Oh me, oh my, how embarassing.
The foolish Bishop of Shrewsbury has been called a nitwit by the free thinking voice of atheism since 1881.
Christianity is the antidote to nasty things like Nazism, claims foolish Catholic bishop
IF A contest had been staged in the UK to find the most offensive Easter sermon of 2012, Mark Davies, the Roman Catholic Bishop of Shrewbury would surely have shashayed off with the top prize.
Davies, according to this report, used the PAGAN festival to warn Britons that if they persisted in undermining Christianity, the country would fall victims to “the most sinister of ideologies” – such as Nazism.
This posturing nitwit – who surely must be aware of the fact that it was German Catholics and the Roman Catholic Church who put total power within the Nazis’ reach – said:
It has, indeed, been the experience of this past century, as both Blessed John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI have observed, how the most poisonous ideologies have arisen within the Christian nations of Europe.
Thus Nazism or Communism attempted to discard the Christian inheritance of faith and morality as if it had never existed. They sought either to return to the pagan past or to ‘re-create’ and ‘redeem’ humanity by political will and ideology with terrible consequences.
Oh yes, how foolish. That Bishop Davies... what a moron.
Meanwhile we live in a country where kids with downs syndrome can be murdered right up to birth simply because they have a disability. A country where your child can be pressured in to ending the life of your grandchild and you don't even get to find out about it. A country where little orphan girls don't have the right to be adopted by a mummy. Oh yes, abandoning Christianity is obviously doing a lot of good...
However - there is no need to worry. Not all of our Bishops are nitwits. Most of them were smart enough to keep their mouths shut on Easter Sunday. They were clever enough to avoid saying anything that might upset atheists. Well done them.
Give me the foolish ones anyday..
