Politics & Religion
Never getting their stories straight. It's been almost 700 years since the round-up of more than ten thousand of the warrior-monks called the Poor Knights of the Temple (Knights Templar). Yet, still, the Catholic Church indicts King Phillip IV (the Fair) while the secular world indicts Pope Clement IV. I see an overly defensive nature posture by the Church on this matter in their here, here, and here. And yet, even those these religious nitwits have been against every critical social reform in the last five decades, proving a cravenness that only a solid link to the worst in American culture can provide, I still don't want them punished, just for being Christians. Some religious people, by the way, are just plain fantastic. The works of the historically fantastic are often an inspiration to the future.
