Sarah Palin has done it again… and the Vatican too

Sarah Palin never ceases to amaze me. The hockey mom converted to voice of conservative America keeps piling up non-sense moments, in a “oh-no-she-didn’t” fashion. This time, she has raised her voice against the construction of a mosque close to Ground Zero. In the process, she invented a new word (“refudiate”) in her Twitter, making her once more an easy target. In her reply, on her Facebook page, she defended herself saying that Shakespeare also liked to invent new words. I’m pretty sure that if he had been born as a 20th-century-Alaskan woman, he would have been just like Palin.

Grammatical mishaps aside, Palin stared once more in the intolerance chapter, calling this new mosque a lack of respect for the victims of 9/11 and claiming it’s a matter of moral decency. I’m sorry, but that’s a load of crap. One group of extremists that uses religion as an excuse for murder can not be mistaken with the entirety of its religion. It is, in itself, an extremist statement, that uses emotion over reason to reach to people that are still angry over it and can not understand the differences between Osama Bin Laden and the Muslim community in their own town. Palin also seems to forget all the atrocities committed by her own religion throughout centuries against people who followed other believes. I wonder how many catholic churches were built in grounds considered sacred to others?…

In a lighter but also religious note, the Vatican was under the spotlight once again because of pedophilia: a hacker managed to alter the Google search results for “Holy See” to introduce the site (the italian word for pedophile) as a top result. The website itself was empty and has been disconnected. I find it odd how is it possible to register a website with such a name, but it definitely makes out a great joke. 😀 And as if it its image hasn’t been bashed enough of late, a document published this week by the Vatican equals the ordination of women to child molesting. You people really don’t get it, do you?…
