When the late Pope John Paul II decided to place the woman so strangely known as ‘Mother’ Teresa on the fast track for beatification, and thus to qualify her for eventual sainthood, the Vatican felt obliged to solicit my testimony and I thus spent several hours in a closed hearing room with a priest, a deacon, and a monsignor, no doubt making their day as I told off, as from a rosary, the frightful faults and crimes of the departed fanatic. In the course of this, I discovered that the pope during his tenure had surreptitiously abolished the famous office of ‘Devil’s Advocate’, in order to fast-track still more of his many candidates for canonization. I can thus claim to be the only living person to have represented the Devil pro bono. Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir
We had the Pope over, didn’t we? The Pope said he loved being in Britain as most of his Nazi pals only ever made it as far as France. Frankie Boyle, Best of Tramadol Nights, Youtube
It’s some plan, isn’t it? With mass destruction, pitiless extermination, annihilation going on all the time. And all of this set in motion on a scale that’s absolutely beyond our imagination, in order that the Pope can tell people not to jerk off. Christopher Hitchens v Rabbi David Wolpe, Boston 2010
I have as much authority as the pope. I just don’t have as many people who believe it. George Carlin
The Pope says AIDS may be bad but condoms are worse. What kind of moral teaching is this? And how many people are going to die for such dogma? Christopher Hitchens, v Reverend Al Sharpton
Are you seeking power in the hereafter or are you seeking it now? It seems to me very obvious – the inescapable conclusion – that it’s temporal power that’s being talked about. And of a very dictatorial kind. Christopher Hitchens v Marvin Olasky
My favourite time in the cycles of public life is the time when the Pope is dead and they haven’t elected a new one. There’s no-one in the world who is infallible for those weeks. And you know, I don’t miss it. Christopher Hitchens
This Pope … spreads the lie that condoms actually increase the incidence of AIDS. Stephen Fry, & Christopher Hitchens v the Catholic Church, debate 2009

The Pope was the official head of the Church in England. And gave Henry the title Defender of the Faith for his loyal zeal. Yet it was this same Henry that eventually brought the Reformation to England. Ann Widdecombe, Christianity: A History s1e5: Reformation
Pope John Paul II created more saints than all his predecessors of the of the past centuries put together. And he had a special affinity with the Virgin Mary. His polytheistic hankerings were dramatically demonstrated in 1981 when he suffered an assassination attempt in Rome, and attributed his survival to intervention to Our Lady of Fatima. A maternal hand guided the bullet. One cannot but wonder why she didn’t guide it to miss him altogether. Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion, cited lecture Berkeley University 2008
The papacy is not other than the ghost of the deceased Roman Empire, sitting crowned upon the grave thereof. Thomas Hobbes, 1588-1679, Leviathan
