Ten Hail Marys and a dozen Our Fathers should do the trick

His Holy Splendiferousness Pope Benedict XVI has called on Roman Catholics to “do penance” for their sins against the little children.

Pontiffs and their minions may be masters at rewriting history, but they have never seemed entirely comfortable with the here and now. It will take more than PR advisors and retired Vatican diplomats to extract Josef Ratzinger and his cult from their current predicament. However, for a suitable fee I would be most happy to offer my humble services. I do so love a challenge!

Now, if you will excuse me…

Cum homine de cane debeo congredi.
