Cunt of the Week™: Pope Benedict XVI

The current Pope, or “Ratty” as he is known in some quarters, has turned out to be a complete cunt.   As the clerical sexual abuse crisis erupts in Germany, the Vatican is doing its best this weekend to protect the Pope and to accuse his detractors of a smear campaign designed to bring him down.

Ratty’s own brother, George, the master of Germany’s leading Catholic boys’ choir for 30 years, denies being aware of the rampant sexual abuse at the boarding school but admits to slapping boys in the face. The German government has accused the Vatican of suppressing the truth about sexual abuse, citing the 2001 directive that declared cases of abuse in Catholic schools “subject to papal confidentiality.” The directive was written by Ratty, in his role as   Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

In 1980, while Ratty headed the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising, he approved therapy and transfer for a priest accused of molesting boys. The priest was allowed to resume pastoral duties, and committed further abuses before being convicted. A subordinate has taken the fall for Ratty, insisting that everything was his fault, but The Rev. Thomas P. Doyle, who once worked at the Vatican Embassy in Washington, says this is nonsense.

Ratty has displayed little interest in going after abusers or seeking justice for victims. He has made statements trying to minimize the problem and to suggest it was exaggerated by the media. He is now making a big show of concern but it’s hard to see his recent flurry of meetings as anything but damage control.

I’m sorry if Catholics are offended to hear that the pontiff is a cunt. But he’s been one since the beginning. He refused to sign a UN declaration on the rights of homosexuals and the disabled. He went to Africa to announce that condoms could make the AIDS crisis worse. He offended Muslims by calling them evil and inhuman, and he offended the world by reinstating an excommunicated Bishop who is a vocal Holocaust denier.

Name one good thing about this cunt! Liberals in the church who had hoped for a return to the spirit of Vatican II were understandably depressed when Ratty was named Pope. Here is a quote I like, heard on the occasion of Ratty’s inaugeration: “Electing Ratzinger after John Paul, is like electing Rumsfeld after George Bush.”

Congratulations, Pope Benedict XVI!

    You forgot early in his early papal authority signing off on an investigation into American nuns for their perceived flexibility on Catholic doctrine like universalism and the ordination of women, and blaming the “destructive blurring of gender roles” for humanity’s imminent downfall. One redeeming factor would be the Vatican’s chief exorcist insisting their various sex scandals – pedophilla, prostitution, rape of nuns – as evidence of Satan in the Vatican. I love it when evangelicals claim that atheists really do believe in God, they just don’t want to be held accountable for their sins. As if organized religion was all about personal accountability and not a divine excuse.

  2. Eliza says:

    In lighter, related news: The Vatican chooses its all-time top 10 rock albums It’s amusingly absurd, right down to reports that Bono called JP2 “history’s first funky pontiff.”

  3. Sister Wolf says:

    Eliza – I agree that leaving out “Pet Sounds” is unforgivable. Fucking Vatican!

  4. Stella Mayfair says:

    pope ratty is an absolute cunt. this evil old nazi contributes to what people the world over perceive as *german*. i am so disgusted! as if our country hadn’t had enough asshats and fucktards throughout recent history! he should be ashamed of himself.

  5. Dave C says:

    Is there a stronger word than cunt? Yes, it’s ‘Ratzinger’. Cunt of the century.

  6. I second the nomination.

  7. MJ says:

    I suppose that the one good thing might be those bitchin’ red Prada loafers, but that’s all I can come up with (as a former Catholic school pupil who loves Lady Gaga for many reasons, chief among them that she went to the NYC branch of my school and is making the nuns nationwide wet their pants with horror – you go girl!).

  8. Ann says:

    Excellent choice for Cunt of the Week. I actually feel ashamed of the fact that I had no idea of some of the atrocities associated with this man. Disgusting.

  9. Juri says:

    You should pay Nazi Ratzi a visit and hand him the COTW award personally!

    Just like Bono did when he gave his glasses to the previous Pope.

  10. Juri says:

    He would look great wearing that ribbon.

  11. peaceBwithU says:

    Recently read a similar story about Pope Fucking Cunt on And I must agree with both ……. he is Cunt of the week and belongs on THE bus. How dare a man of the cloth touch anybody but himself or excuse anyone who doesn’t follow the same rules. He must be living the life of the afore mentioned sailor Massa and his friend Assburn who take literally the old saying “any port in a storm”

  12. HelOnWheels says:

    Not only is he C.O.W. he’s….SATAN!

    “the chief exorcist claims the Devil is lurking at the heart of the Catholic Church” (Telegraph)

  13. dust says:

    Holly cunt!

  14. TheShoeGirl says:

    Nazi Ratzi… I like that. CUNT indeed.

  15. Dru says:

    I’m just sorry for all the nice, sweet nuns at my old school (the ones who were nice, that is- not all of them were) who probably vehemently disagree with this man’s cuntish intolerance and general nastiness, and will never be able to say so publicly because they’re bound to him by some outmoded sense of loyalty (on top of which, the Church will always treat them like second-class citizens).

    Great choice for Cunt of the Week, Sister! Organised religion is always worth a good takedown. Not ripping on anyone’s beliefs, but it really does seem like power corrupts. The only religious leader I can even bring myself to like right now is the Dalai Lama, even if there’s a whole world of sad in his story.

  16. arline says:

    You can sure pick em.

  17. Jill says:

    Preachin’ to the choir, Sistah!

    Does that saying even apply here? Now I’m not sure. I went to Catholic schools from Pre-K to College…now agnostic.

  18. Buddha? says:

    There’s no redemption for that one . . . unless all the wealth is distributed to the poor . . . no designer shoes and all the other paraphernalia that goes with that office, he recants the stupid stuff (condoms, sex, etc) and he lives the life of Myanmar Buddhist Monk for a year.

    What the hell, there’s no redemption for those in power who use their power “not-for-the-good-of-humanity.”

  19. As someone who was very concerned by his election. I have to say that you are right. It is a dreadful shame when progress and Vatican II is becoming more of a distant memory. Catholicism doesn’t need this one that’s for sure.

  20. Sil says:

    Being from Spain, you can imagine that I am “Catholic” because it was the only religion when I was born, just after a dictatorial goverment that lasted at least 30 years. That said, I think you forgot to start this week with The Cunts of the last two mileniums, and I use the plural because all priests should be nominated, and win. I can assure that I will never, ever, marry in a church, I prefer to marry in the judge.

  21. Cricket9 says:

    I do too agree on the nomination. There were numerous child abuse by the priests scandals in Poland in the last years – all promptly swept under the carpet by the church officials. We only heard about them thanks to a Father Superior who refused to keep quiet, despite the pressure from “high places”. I’ve read in today’s paper “Celibacy not related to abuse, says Vatican – celibacy is giving yourself to God”. Giving yourself to God my ass. It is related to abuse, and it is about leaving your inheritance to the Church, not to your children. It was instituted some time around V century, just for this purpose.
    I wasn’t big on John Paul, but – at least he did help with getting rid of the communist government in Poland. I don’t see any redeeming qualities in Ratty.

  22. Mark says:

    Good choice for Cunt of the Week, Sister.

    Can Liz Cheney be runner up?

  23. karen says:

    agree 100% this guy knew where all the bodies were buried ..he has ignored or over looked so much evil ..that’s how he was elected the other “princes” of the Church were afraid not to vote for him.. responsible for the stinking pile of crap the Church is mired in and the whole story isn’t out there yet there is more to come

  24. Jenny Dunville says:

    Working solidly the last 5 days so I haven’t been able to tune in. Imagine my DELIGHT to do so & see Ratty as COTW. The remark about Africans/condoms & voodoo put me over the top with this guy. Non-religious myself, I have no idea why anyone wants to be a member of the club that has him as Grand Poo-bah.

  25. Bevitron says:

    He is now The Cuntiff.
    (His Assholiness.)

  26. patni says:

    Nice call Sister Wolf. This mother fucker might be due to receive cunt of the decade. In fact lets be serious. I have a cunt, and it has given me a fair amount of pleasure in my life. I am not really sure i want my body parts affiliated with this dick.
    ok i need to take a shower to wash his stink off of my twat.

  27. Danielle says:

    If I had one reason to despair for humanity this would be it.

  28. I was almost tempted to forward this to my mother, but Christmas would most definitely suck for the rest of my life. On an equally shitty note, why do these sick fucks get a nice name like “Pedophile” (etymology: “pedo” child; “phile” lover). Really? Love?

    If somebody can tell me the synonym for “ruin a child for the rest of their fucking life” I could probably come up with something a tad more appropriate.

  29. Suebob says:

    I call him “Johnny Rats” because it has a nice, mafia-like ring to it. And if the Vatican isn’t an organized crime syndicate, I don’t know what it.

  30. Father Kocsuker says:

    now that you have named the cunt of the century cunt of the week, from now on we will have to play “top that cunt”… (it’s going to be a much tougher game from now on, boys…)

  31. Ha ha haaaaaaaa… I remember when he was elected, I told my-sister-the-sister that she’d better take her old veil out of mothballs.

    And any “best of” list that doesn’t include Diana Ross & the Supremes’ Greatest Hits means nothing to me.

  32. OMGGMAB says:

    Been away for a couple days, but really enjoying this award ceremony! Bevitron: love the new titles you have bestowed on King Ratty. Take a look at the miter he wears. Really has a very cuntly shape. How appropriate.

  33. hammie says:

    I was too busy getting sick everytime the news came on irish radio and waking up wondering how the fuck a cardinal gets promoted after making abused kids swear to secrecy about their penetrative abuse – to see this post.

    Yes, Reverend Paisley was right. The pope is cunt. xx

  34. Did you see the story in yesterday’s Times about this fucker? Disgusting.

  35. Dick Fiddler says:

    Fucking blazing hypocritical CUNT!

    But that’s not the point.

    CUNT’S anyway.

  36. Lily says:

    I know catholics (in Italy) who hate him and the current hipocrisy of the whole church.

  37. Rusty Ballack says:

    If that cunt really were infallible wouldn’t he have joined the US Airborn Division instead of the Waffen SS? Or was it just a case of ‘mysterious ways’? And if that cuntbox of a cult has such appaulingly low standards in choosing God’s Representitive On Earth, why is anybody suprised the whole cockknocking spunkbarrel is full of kiddie fiddlers at all?

  38. Rusty Ballack says:

    And what is that cunt doing meeting the Queen anyway? Isn’t she leader of the church that got the whole of England excommunicated anyway? Oh the hipocrisy, the shame of Man. And those nuns sure have some nasty habits.
