Kristluse vihkamise musternäide

Inglismaa võitlev esiateist Richard Dawkins on paavsti visiidi ülevoolavast edust nii ärritunud, et muutub oma vihapursetes lausa haletsusväärseks (vt tema artiklit pealkirjaga “Ratzinger on inimsuse vaenlane” ajalehes The Guardian). Soovitan teksti lugeda, et saada aimdust, mida tõeline vihkamine endast kujutab.

Meenutuseks nii palju, et tegu on mehega, kelle arvates võis elu Maal saada alguse nii, et rohelised mehikesed transportisid selle siia, ent kes peab samal ajal võimalust, et elu alge on Jumalik, naeruväärseks. Aukartust äratav teaduslikkus!

“Benedict’s predecessor, John Paul II, was respected by some as a saintly man. But nobody could call Benedict XVI saintly and keep a straight face. Whatever this leering old fixer may be, he is not saintly. Is he intellectual? Scholarly? That is often claimed, although it is far from clear what there is in theology to be scholarly about. Surely nothing to respect.”
