The Pope Calling The Berlusconi Black

I’ve heard some pretty obvious cases of the pot calling the kettle black, but the recent controversy over the Pope ticking off Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi for child sexual exploitation shows how complete is the lack of self-awareness demonstrated by the psychopaths who surround and occupy St Peter’s Throne.
It raises the interesting question of whether the Pope actually thinks he is less guilty than Berlusconi. Does Ratso consider personally exploiting teenage prostitutes worse than callously enabling systemic child rape?
Does he actually believe himself infallible, and think that if he claims often enough that he is helping victims rather than sacrificing them to greed and ambition and multiplying their harm, then it must be true.
And that’s even before we talk about scale. Reportedly Berlusconi has voracious sexual appetites. Possibly even nearly as voracious as just one of the thousands of criminal sexual predators in the Pope’s uniform destroying whole countries worth of young lives.
Or is it just that His Greediness, unlike Berlusconi, presides over a secretive, medieval system that is designed to ensure he will never be subject to investigation, never be held responsible for his own actions, and so thinks he can get away with this hypocritical pretence of moral superiority.
But the Rat in a dress can’t see the horrible, tragic irony.
Because he has never been able to see us at all.
That would require him to be human, and he is so much less than that.
