  1. Christians complaining about collective guilt.. well..that's rich.

    Jesus Christ!! This is absolutely obscene! They´re playing victim now?!!! >:o

    Anti-semitism!! This coming from a church that only ex-communicated one Nazi and that was because he married a protestant.  Where did a pale faced young Austrian get his anti-semitism from I wonder???  

    It is interesting to see that the religions are watching each others backs.  
    What a bunch of sick f*cks!

    Joey Ratz is trying to distance himself from this, now that it has been shot down. Yeah, right. That sermon had to have been ok'ed by the man with the big hat.

  6. Is it my imagination or does he look exactly like the Archbishop of Canterbury?
