Church irrelevant in today's society

We shouldn't really be surprised that the ex-member of the Nazi youth movement has seen fit to declare atheism as akin to Nazism.
After all, the Catholic Church has read the writing on the wall that it is becoming more and more irrelevant in the everyday lives of ordinary, free-thinking people who are consumed with apathy as far as the Pope and Catholicism are concerned.
What the Pope didn't convey, however, was how many hundreds of innocent children have been abused by atheists, or how much misery, pain, fear and self-loathing has been inflicted in its name.
