Pope to Beatify Torturer

On October 28, the Pope will beatify (certify as Blessed) several martyrs of the Spanish Civil War, among them Gabino Olaso Zabala. Only thing is, Zabala is known to have participated in the torture of a fellow priest. Disturbingly, some Catholics are rallying behind a man who never publicly regretted his abusive past.

    As Christopher Hitchens likes to say, “Good people do good things. Bad people do bad things. But if you want good people to do bad things, then you need religion.”
