blame game

Jews Didn’t Kill Jesus, Pope Says. Maybe The Gays Did?

Just in time for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops removing all references of “booty” be removed from upcoming Bible editions (it’ll replaced by “spoils,” as in “spoils of war,” because “booty” is too naughty; and “holocaust” will become “burnt offering”), the first of which hits next week on Ash Wednesday, Pope Benedict XVI has delivered an even more startling declaration from Rome: The Jews aren’t at fault for Jesus dying. In His Holiness’ upcoming tome Jesus of Nazareth-Part II, the pope lets the Jews off the hook (and effectively rules centuries of persecution were for naught), since there is no basis in Scripture to blame all of Jewish-kind. I sure hope John Galliano got a galley of this one.
