Richard Dawkins and Christoper Hitchens would like to arrest Pope Benedict XVI for international crimes against humanity, specifically, "child sexual slavery".
In typically Dawkinsesque fashion, Dawkins began his most recent attack on Catholics with some pretty slanderous statements against Pope Benedict that were presumably warm up exercises for his and Hitchens' current campaign to attack religion.
I have a better idea.
Let's arrest Dawkins and Hitchens. For international crimes against humanity. For the religious persecution of over 1 billion Catholics in the world.
The International Criminal Court's definition of crimes against humanity--which Dawkins et all hope to use against Pope Benedict--includes religious persecution.
"The definition of crimes against humanity contained in the Nürnberg Charter included the requirement that the prohibited acts be committed in connection with crimes against peace or war crimes. A decision has yet to be made as to whether the definition of crimes against humanity contained in the Statute will also include such acts when committed in peacetime. In this regard, the Yugoslavia Tribunal stated, 'it is by now a settled rule of customary international law that crimes against humanity do not require a connection to international armed conflict...Persecution against a group on political, racial, national, ethnic, cultural or religious (and possibly gender) grounds".
It's time to turn the tables on these radical atheist extremists.
