How about:

There's nothing moral about homophobia

or

There's nothing moral about misogyny

or

There's nothing moral about protecting child abusers

or

Thank God for Secular Law

This would probably be too "inflammatory", plus few would get the reference, but a favorite line from ex-Catholic James Joyce's Finnegans Wake:

Choke the Pope!

Papal visit - 20 million Papal ideas - worthless Papal swim home - priceless For comic relief there's religion, for everything else there's Atheism. Accepted the world over.

You can't spell ratzinger without n.a.z.i

Show me the transitional apostles

Catholicisms is for plastics. Women, gays, and contraception are fabulous.

God is love. My two dad's agree.

Papal state visit £20 million. Voicing my opinion on the oppression of woman, homosexuals and the rape of children by the catholic church without fear of censor or religious reprisal. Priceless.

Paula is right, we need to ridicule this creature so that, not only during this visit but in the future, whenever he speaks, everyone just laughs at him. That would be the best outcome for this visit.

"catholic morality is like nazi love"

(sorry, that's the best I could come up with).

“The Christian believer is a simple person: Bishops should protect the faith of their little people against the power of intellectuals” Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger

Bit too long for a slogan but If someone could get that shortened but keep the sentiment......

That is amazing. It seems utterly damning. Did he really say that? Is there any possible 'out of context' defence?

Abstinence makes the church grow fondlers.

God there's zillions. I'm meant to be doing something else. When's he over?

OT - To any English speakers here - Can one say 'Protest the Pope'? It sounds American to me.

...

In a sermon on Dec. 31, 1979, Ratzinger defended the action against Küng in terms that would become familiar: "The Christian believer is a simple person: bishops should protect the faith of these little people against the power of intellectuals." Source (5th para. from the end)

mirandaceleste's Avatar Comment 26 by mirandaceleste

Ah yes, I've heard that "little people" comment before. The backstory is here. It was a very bizarre situation, with JP II and Ratzinger sort of teamed up against a "liberal" Catholic theologian, one whom the article (at that link) describes as Ratzinger's "nemesis".

Just a bit from that link (Küng is the theologian) (and I can't get the blockquote function to work properly, so I had to break it up into three separate ones. But in the article, there's no break between these paragraphs):

The first hint of a disciplinary measure in the works came in an October 16, 1979, radio interview given by Ratzinger, in which he was strongly critical of Küng's article about the pope. On Nov. 5-9, the German cardinals were in Rome for a meeting with the pope. In an interview afterward with the German Catholic news agency, Ratzinger used the term missio canonica for the first time in connection to the case, saying that Küng cannot teach Catholic theology and hold the views he does. The missio canonica is the license that a Catholic theologian must hold in order to teach at a pontifically recognized institution.
On Dec. 18, 1979, the German bishops held a press conference announcing a declaration from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith that Küng was no longer qualified to be a Catholic theologian.
In a sermon on Dec. 31, 1979, Ratzinger defended the action against Küng in terms that would become familiar: "The Christian believer is a simple person: bishops should protect the faith of these little people against the power of intellectuals."
