Dawkins and Hitchens vs The Pope

A very brave step which hopefully make history: Two leading atheist campaigners are planning a legal ambush to have the Pope arrested during his state visit to Britain for ‘crimes against humanity’.

The pair believe they can exploit the same legal principle used to arrest Augusto Pinochet, the late Chilean dictator, when he visited Britain in 1998.  

The Pope was embroiled in new controversy this weekend over a letter he signed arguing that the ‘good of the universal church’ should be considered against the defrocking of an American priest who committed sex offences against two boys.  

We wish them all the best.
