A Catholic Response to Washington Post's Know-Nothing Editors

The Washington Post* wants Gay Marrage, Abortion, as secular America and the Catholic Church to disappear. The Washington Post issued this fatwah on Catholics.

From today's On Faith section: Should the Pope resign? Richard Dawkins answers:

Pope Ratzinger should not resign. He should remain in charge of the whole rotten edifice - the whole profiteering, woman-fearing, guilt-gorging, truth-hating, child-raping institution - while it tumbles, amid a stench of incense and a rain of tourist-kitsch sacred hearts and preposterously crowned virgins, about his ears.

Here's my response - It only takes two of us, though we started with twelve.

The Nicene Creed

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
one in Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he was born of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.

For our sake he was crucified
under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered, died, and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in fulfillment of the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son
he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic
and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism
for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

WASHINGTON POST MAY BE THE MOST UNDERVALUED media company in America today. That's because investors give it virtually no credit for Kaplan, a large and rapidly growing education division that generates more than half the company's revenue and profit.

Shares of the Post (ticker: WPO) trade for 445, less than half their 2004 peak, and about 50% of Barron's estimate of the company's asset value. Controlled by the founding Graham family, the low-profile Post is a mini conglomerate, operating Kaplan, a cable-TV business with 669,000 basic subscribers, a group of network-TV stations, the Washington Post newspaper and Newsweek magazine

Huge Hat Tip to Jill at Pundit and Pundette

Richard Dawkins' arrogance, is exceeded only by his ignorance.
