“Within twenty years the Pope will be where he ought to be, in Hell, tormented by great big poofter devils — and very active ones, not passive ones," she said.

In investigating more the Nazi Pope Bendict's record on free speech and human rights I discovered that besides knowing his old Pro Nuncio to Argentina and 'old family friend'
to George W Bush - Pio Laghi - allowed Argentinians military his 'blessings' as they dumped polane loads of their dead Argentine citizen-victims into the Atlantic and actually stole babies they had their female victims give birth to before killing them !

No Comments Yet on Italian comedian faces "Fascist" prosecution for mocking the Pope

The Minister of Justice in Italy has given prosecutors permission to use a Fascist-era law to punish a comedian for mocking the Pope.

Sabina Guzzanti is accused of "offending the honour of the sacred and inviolable person" of Pope Benedict XVI.

The satirist and comedian, during a routine at a rally in Rome in July, condemned the Vatican‘s interference in issues such as gay rights.

“Within twenty years the Pope will be where he ought to be, in Hell, tormented by great big poofter devils — and very active ones, not passive ones," she said.

Now the Rome prosecutor has been given permission to proceed against her under the 1929 Lateran Treaty.

The treaty, between the Vatican and the Italian government, was signed when fascist leader Benito Mussolini was in power.

It stipulated that an insult to the Pope carries the same penalty as an insult to the Italian President.

Permission to bring a prosecution has to be given by the Ministry of Justice.

Nobel prize-winning playwright Dario Fo said of the decision to take action against a comedian: "This is Fascism pure and simple."

Ms Guzzanti's father, a centre Right MP, was shocked by the prosecution.

According to The Times Paolo Guzzanti branded it: "a return to the Middle Ages. Perhaps my daughter should be be submitted to the judgement of God by being made to walk on hot coals."

Conservative media tycoon Silvio Berlusconi won the Italian general election in March and began his third term as Prime Minister.

His predecessor Romano Prodi's commitment to increased gay rights caused tension in the previous administration.

It lost the support of parliament in January after the nine-party coalition government he was leading fell apart.

Proposals from ministers to bring forward a draft bill that would grant any unwed couple, gay or straight, the right to register themselves as a family stalled.

The proposed new law would also have granted some pension and health insurance rights, but falls far short of the civil partnerships gay and lesbians in the UK enjoy.

Italy is perhaps the only country in Europe where the Roman Catholic Church retains such strong influence over politics.

Church-state relations have improved following Pope Benedict XVI's repeated attacks on the proposed legislation to recognise gay couples.

Grandmothers To Pope: Drop Edict
Over 500 years ago, Indigenous peoples of the western hemisphere first experienced the arrival of the Europeans (Spaniards and Italians under Spanish flag). When these strange looking men stepped off their ship and set foot on Arawak Territory (initially an island later named Hispanola), the first thing they did was plant the flag of Spain and declare the land their own. This action was under the authorization of certain papal bulls issued by the Pope . The pope authorized the conversion of the "discovered" heathens to Christianity or to "overthrow" and "subjugate" them.

On July 9, 2008, the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers (the "Council") arrived in Rome, Italy to address the Vatican papal bull. We were turned away.

The Council did not come to plant a "conquering" flag, but to lay a flag of peace and conciliation on the ground of the Vatican Square in front of the door to St. Peter's Basilica. On the flag was laid a sacred staff and sacred prayer feathers, including a written statement from the Council, along with special items to be gifted to the Pope Benedict XVI. The grandmothers then lit smudging incense (sage, cedar, copal), gathered in a circle, and planted the prayer.

The grandmothers had tickets for the public audience of Pope Benedict XVI on July 9. Shortly after before their arrival, however, it was announced that the Pope's public audiences for the entire month of July were canceled. The Grandmothers smiled and decided that as women of prayer they would go to the Vatican anyway, and deliver a prepared statement and make prayers on that holy ground. Their trip to the Vatican is part of their spiritual journey on a spiritual path, for the sake of Indigenous nations, all peoples, and all living things.

There were many tourists at St. Peter's Square; most only glanced as they passed. Then a man suddenly stopped and watched for a moment. Perhaps the aroma of the burning sage and copal drew attention to the group's activities. Suddenly, it was as though a reaction was triggered in him, and he yelled, "What you're doing is anti-Catholic. Get out of here. I'm calling the police!" The Grandmothers looked at him and continued their prayer.

Soon thereafter, the Vatican police arrived, angrily shaking their fists in the air. They declared, "This is the Vatican State and you cannot do that here. You must leave, get out." The grandmothers continued praying.

They traveled to Italy to meet and simply pray in peace. The grandmothers read a prepared statement with a timeline, detailing the historical efforts by Indigenous Nations and Peoples calling for the revocation of the papal bulls. The Grandmothers called the names of the individuals and organizations who supported the Grandmothers' journey, channeling their thoughts into our prayers, strengthening this effort. As a finale, our youth ambassador, 9 year-old Davian Joell Stand-Gilpin, great-great-great-great granddaughter of Chief Dull Knife of the Lakota Nation, performed a traditional dance in celebration of the event.

The Grandmothers are certain that it is now time to open a sincere spiritual dialogue between the Catholic church and indigenous peoples to arrive at a meeting of minds and discuss the revocation of three antiquated and divisive papal bulls and edicts, Dum Diversas, June 18, 1952, Romanus Pontifex, January 8, 1455, and Inter Caetera, May 4, 1493.

Mona Polacca is a Hopi/Havasupai /Tewa elder working on her Ph.D at at Arizona State University. Mona has worked on issues of Native American alcoholism. domestic violence and mental health for the elderly native peoples. She is member of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers.

Italian comic risks trial for attack on Pope
An Italian comic who said Pope Benedict would be punished in hell for the church's treatment of homosexuals could be tried for dishonouring him, a jailable crime under a 1929 treaty with the Vatican, judicial sources said.

Sabina Guzzanti, one of Italy's most pungent political satirists, made the remarks before a cheering crowd of thousands gathered at Rome's Piazza Navona in July.

Her explicit comments were widely published by Italian media and posted on the Internet at:

The church, at the time, expressed its "profound displeasure with the offensive words about the Holy Father".

A Rome prosecutor has decided the comments may go beyond satire and break a law protecting the honour and dignity of the leader of 1.1 billion Roman Catholics, under a treaty signed by fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, the judicial sources said.

After reviewing the case file, the prosecutor's office asked Justice Minister Angelino Alfano for permission to proceed against Guzzanti with an investigation that could end in a trial. No answer has yet been given.

"We're in the Middle Ages," Paolo Guzzanti, Sabina's father, a conservative senator allied with Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, told Italian media.

Leftist politicians said the issue was one of free-speech. Socialist Bobo Craxi warned that punishing satire would bring Italy close to a totalitarian state.

Among the Lateran Treaties that established Vatican City as a sovereign state within Italy, the "Cordatato" treaty provided that offences against the pontiff be punished the same way as offences against Italy's president.

They can be punished with five years in prison.

Guzzanti, famous for her criticisms and impersonations of media mogul Berlusconi, has long complained of media censorship. Her television show "Raiot" was taken off the air in 2003 after a defamation suit from Berlusconi's broadcaster Mediaset.

But Roberto Castelli, a former Berlusconi justice minister and now a cabinet aide, said Guzzanti had committed no crime.

"I don't agree with absolutely anything Sabina Guzzanti says, much less about the Pope, but I defend her right to say all of the enormous idiocies she wants," Castelli said.
