Pope Palpatine

I recently noticed a distinct lack of a page with a comprehensive list of “Pope Palpatine” images, so I compiled this one. (If you know who created these, or if I missed a good one, let me know.)

And just so you Catholics don’t accuse me of being needlessly “militant” (ha) you should note that I have many legitimate beefs with this guy, his predecessors, and the religion of which he is the dictator (and in which I was raised).

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Sometimes illusions can be quite close to the truth!

Bonus: Catholic Cardinals heiling Herr Führer.

    Oh wow, that one of the cardinals saluting Hitler is hilarious.

    Mr. Atheist adds: It’s really not, as other commenters note. Let’s move on.

    I think one should consider the two cardinals everything but hilarious… Remember what it meant..

    Oh, are you kidding me? Tell me, do you know something more about WW2 and Hitler? I am from a country where 80thousand of Jews (from 120th) were killed in camps. Do you know, who was in the same line after them? Roma, Slavs and Christians. The ideology of Hitler said, that religion is root of all problems. Yes, Jews was on the first place, but next? It is really discusting that you have fun from this sad moments of history.

    Hitler said “Religion is the root of all problems?” Huh? He and his Nazis were Catholic.

    That said, I could easily believe he targeted various Christian denominations, perhaps including Orthodox.

    Personally, I don’t find the last picture funny at all, though, either.

    Interesting, okay, it seems there is a lot of Christian imagery in Nazi propaganda, and for the most part Christian leaders did not object to Nazism; and some Nazi leaders privately viewed Nazism and Christianity as “irreconcilable” while others saw them as “part of the same movement.”

    Regardless — definitely a dark time for Germans and the world, and one that brings me no mirth.

    I kinda miss John Paul II. I don’t agree with most religious groups general stances on many things for varied reasons, but at least John Paul looked like a nice guy. o.O Palpatine kinda gives off the impression that he’s going to eat you alive…specially that first picture…Maybe someone should give him a snickers bar….

    As to your pictures of the cardinals saluting Hitler, I will point out that many priests, bishops, and cardinals in churches throughout Germany, both Catholic and Protestant, were tortured or killed by the Nazis. The Nazis systematically expelled priests and higher ranking church officials from the churches and replaced them with Nazi stooges. I suggest you look your history up.
