I guess it's nice to be forgiven...

Pope Benedict says that the Jews weren't responsible for Deicide. Well, I guess that’s nice. What is more, he claims that it has always been an error to think that the Christian scriptures indicate that Jews might be responsible. The whole book hasn’t been released yet, but I am skeptical about that. I think it’s pretty clear from the story who is to blame, and that it is set up as a conflict between “The Jews” and Jesus. Nice try, but I think that the Church actually has some more serious problems right now.

This inability to admit that one's holy books were a product of their time has always been really surprising to me. It seems easier to salvage the grains of truth from an imperfect text (and blame fallible people for screwing up the divine message) to insisting on a divine inspiration that produces incomprehensible garbage that takes 2000 years to decipher.
