Forward to the Past with Pope Ignoramus CCLXV

26 12 2011

Many prior Popes were no more or less ignorant than their flocks, being simply men of their times. They had the same knowledge of how the world worked as the generally educated in the community.

Later Popes became better educated, but much knowledge was suppressed from general knowledge in order that the church be the font f all wisdom.

From the Renaissance to the Reformation, from the Industrial Revolution and the Enlightenment, knowledge became greater, education began to build a class of free thinkers and enquirers whilst the Papacy clung to its role as myth maker and preserver.

Now we are blessed with a Pope who would wind the clock back 500 years, who would take from us all the knowledge Man has gained, and see us enslaved again.
