Porn Publishing Pope
To open a discussion on this article, please use the contact page to provide your comments.
According to a fair and balanced Fox News report, a German publishing house owned by the Catholic Church sells pornographic novels, thousands of them.
Apparently the Church tried to sell this company back in 2009, but they were not offered a good enough price. Presumably a price that would make up for the loss of their stream of profits from pornography.
Now I'm not against pornography so I cannot criticize the Pope for owning a porn publisher. But - the Pope is officially against pornography. So it is fair to criticize him for hypocrisy. And, the Pope is officially against masturbation. So once again, it is fair to criticize him for hypocrisy.
