What Ratzinger was before he became Pope is irrelevant, but he was NOT a Nazi, and the church doesn't abuse anyone. I'll grant that some of the people who held positions of power in the church did, and others covered for them. It should not have happened but that is not the fault of the church itself. As for your least comment, You'll be long dead and forgotten before that happens.

Liberal academics have been using speech codes for years. They hear an idea they don't like and it makes them angry. But they don't quite know how to defeat the idea on its own merits. So instead of either a) taking the time to cool down and offer a rational response, or b) actually changing their view, they simply give in to the impulse to censor. That is why our campus speech codes really don't reduce so-called hate speech. They simply embolden those who hate speech.

I wish I could say that this childish inclination toward censorship is unique to liberal...
