Pope Benedict: Bible Cannot Be Taken Literally
#4
Quote: In direct relation to the study of the Bible, Pope Benedict has “criticized ‘fundamentalist’ or ‘literalist’ interpretations and urged renewed appreciation for the symbolic and spiritual interpretation techniques used by the ancient fathers of the church” (ibid., emphasis mine).

In a most outlandish pontification, Benedict declared, “An authentic interpretation of the Bible must always be in harmony with the faith of the Catholic Church.”

This guy who writes at the Strumpet is a wanker.  Of course, literalist interpretations of the Bible can be criticized, that's how protestant weirdos like this guy lord it over their congregations by creating an atmosphere of infallibilism surrounding their persons.
