Why we shouldn’t fear Pope Benedict XVI

A Bavarian bar-goer who can put away a German stein such as this one is alright by me.  Alas, if only Ratzinger could have appreciated Luther’s passionate love for beer, perhaps he could have appreciated some of the other aspects of his thought as well.  Regardless, I for one am glad to have a Pope that can legitimately down his pilsners while paying no heed to the nuns in the background.


  1. You never know, maybe the nuns are downing their own liters of beer as well, or at least I’d like to think so.

    I’m sure B16 does appreciate Luther’s love for beer, and much else:

    That Martin Luther? He wasn’t so bad, says Pope

    Of course, for those who know Ratzinger’s other works related to ecumenism, know his admiration for Luther, so this is not surprising.

    Apparently, he’s a great expert on the pre-schismatic Luther.
