The Hypocrisy of Religion: Catholic Cardinal threatens State Politicians

06-06-2007 08:55

SYDNEY-- A comment by Catholic Archbishop George Pell directed at Catholic Premier, Morris Iemma and other Catholic politicians, is clearly an attempt by the church to interfere with matters of State. Is this a case of an insular Cardinal pining for the good ol’ days when the Holy Roman Empire ruled Europe with a corrupt iron cross or is it a case of blatant religious hypocrisy? Perhaps the Cardinal’s comments, relating to stem cell issues, constitute a clear case of criminal blackmail – legal advocates may find a prime target in Cardinal Pell. A legal action could be interpreted as the State clearly delineating a distinction between matters of church and matters of State – Cardinals may discover they can’t have their cake and eat it with impunity!

Rostock No Borders. Moronic cops attack demo at the sight of pogrom.

05-06-2007 21:25

Cops attempt to kick things off...
In 1992 Germany saw its first pogrom since the days of Hitler. A hostel in Lictenhagen used by refugees and immigrant workers was burnt to the ground by a gang of pissed up nazis as 3,000 local racists cheered them on. The 30 cops in attendance looked the other way and the event became an international scandal. It happened after a hysterical racist campaign by the conservative right and their tabloids (sound familiar?). Following the pogrom racist laws were passed and refugees rights were eroded.

Given the history of Lichtenhagen you would have thought that the cops might keep a low profile?

Yeah right...
