Mmm, sacrilicious.

For a while I was working on a post on the papacy of John Paul II, but I kept discarding it and starting over because it got too obnoxious. (And when I think my own post on religion is too obnoxious, well...)

So instead, just read this well-written piece from the Irish Times. Not that it isn't obnoxious, but it's better than what I was going to post.

Then, fill out your Pope Brackets.

All this focus on the Pope prompted me to go web-surfing on various topics related to Catholicism. The best find was unquestionably this idiosyncratic account of the heretical Circumcellion sect, described therein as the "absolute dumbest religious movement in history". Note that the page is safe for work, but the site [rotten.com] is not. Rotten.com, strangely, has a whole collection of essays on such topics; another interesting one is Secret Archives of the Vatican, which sounds like it should be from a Dan Brown novel but is apparently real.

The pope bracket is bloody hilarious. I _wish_ I thought of that.

The pope brackets is to be commended for including Father Ted Crilly, the main character in the Irish comedy Father Ted.

Not to mention "Duke."
