Too little too late…?

From the amusing Catholic Church PR man love rat libel case:

But when she discovered a week later that she was pregnant with twins, he began to withdraw, the court heard.

I know that’s what Catholics are supposed to do, but I think the idea is that you do it before you get her pregnant…

Catholic Church in “bunch of despicable scumbags” shock

Remember the Spanish Civil War? You know, the one where idealistic lefties backed by sane liberals everywhere fought against an evil fascist bastard backed by Hitler and the Catholic Church?

One might have thought that, having explicitly supported Franco and tacitly supported Hitler, and given the Hitler Youth background that Pope Ratzo claims he didn’t really mean, the Catholics would be keen to play down their contribution to total and utter evil during the 1930s and 1940s. Hell, maybe even to apologise for backing the most evil people ever?

But no, not a bit of it. The Vatican is holiding a ceremony to honour Catholics who died fighting on the fascist side in the Spanish Civil War. Exclusively the ones who fought on the fascist side. What an awful bunch of cunts.

I wish we’d been more successful at burning the fuckers alive when we still went in for that sort of thing. Or ideally, that we could bring that sort of thing back…

Random hungover links

Fat Americans waste a billion gallons of petrol each year. Actually, it’s worse, as farming all that un-needed and un-healthy food wastes masses of fossil fuels. They should be making whisky instead. Hmm, whisky…

Nicaragua steps back into the fucking dark-ages by relenting to pressure from nut-job Catholics, and banning all forms of abortion, even when the mother’s life is at risk.

A police force has been told to stop logging information on drug dealers, as it would “lead to a higher target the following year”. Why this comes as a surprise to anyone is a mystery to me. If you set fairly intelligent people a fairly simple task (say, “meet all your targets, which are based upon last year’s performance”) then said people will find clever ways to game the system (such as, making sure you don’t over-shoot the target by much, as that would lead to a much higher target the next year). I’m lead to believe that since the 80s, business management has clearly understood this. Sadly New Labour learnt their ideas about management then, and seemingly haven’t bothered to actually look at any empirical evidence since.
