"In an interview published Saturday by Germany newspaper Die Welt, Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Mueller likened the sentiment directed toward the Church to that of the pogroms against Jews in Europe."
In case you don't know who Mueller is, he is the Head of Doctrine for the Catholic church. He is second to the Pope. Basically, he now holds the position that Ratzinger had before being elevated to Pope. One of the top theologians of the church is trying to claim that criticism of the church amounts to pogroms. This pompous asshole is actually claiming that verbal and written criticism is the equivalent to not just acts of violence, bullshit in itself, but is tantamount to attempts at genocide!
He doesn't stop there, though. According to a story reposted on HuffPo from AP, this fucking ignorant unethical lying sack of shit had the nerve to claim those criticizing the church, "borrow arguments used by totalitarian ideologies such as Communism and Nazism against Christianity." First, there are plenty of non-Catholic Christians who also criticize the the "Holy See" and its lackeys. Communism is not a synonym for atheism even if it were only atheists criticizing the church. And, then, there is the fact that the overwhelming majority of Nazis were Christians. Hitler was a Catholic!
