Richard Dawkins wants to arrest the Pope

Here's some "news". Rabid atheist Richard "Dick" Dawkins wants to arrest the Pope when the Holy Father visits the UK this fall.

From the Times Online UK:

RICHARD DAWKINS, the atheist campaigner, is planning a legal ambush to have the Pope arrested during his state visit to Britain “for crimes against humanity”.

Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the atheist author, have asked human rights lawyers to produce a case for charging Pope Benedict XVI over his alleged cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic church.

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.

One word: yawn. Usually stuff like this makes me mad. This time it's just makes me feel sorry for Mr Dawkins and Mr Hitchens. What poor lonely black souls they must have.
