Vatican dislikes Democrats

Vatican calls American Democrats the "party of death".

Boy, nothing like Church interference in politics, is there?

This kind of attempted interference in our politics is repellent and should be resisted. This is the United States of America, not the United States of the Vatican. And just weeks before the election here, this can be seen as nothing short of an attempt to sway voters in our election to some more conservative viewpoint that better suits their authoritarian concerns.

It's simply repulsive. And may America be damned if they pay the slightest attention to this nonsense. (Fortunately, I suspect that few people will, indeed, few Catholics will, if previous elections are any judge.) But it's the Pope himself who deserves the biggest condemnation for even trying this shit. Western Europe has been democratic for 50 years. Surely, he should know better.

Oh, wait, right... now he's the voice of god.
