Throw out your axis. We're going with ideology now.

All of you guardians against the spreading, evil malfeasance of the libruls will need to update your bumper stickers and leaflets. His Holiness himself, the Holy See, the Kingpin of Christians, Pope John Paul II, has usurped Dubya's attack on gay marriage and all of the things destroying "decent society." Yes... that's right. No more "axis of evil" for you! Now you have to deal with the "ideology of evil." And as we all know, an ideology is one hell of a lot more frightening than any old "axis" you'd care to name.

ROME, Italy (Reuters) -- Homosexual marriages are part of "a new ideology of evil" that is insidiously threatening society, Pope John Paul says in his newly published book.

In "Memory and Identity," the Pope also calls abortion a "legal extermination" comparable to attempts to wipe out Jews and other groups in the 20th century.

He also reveals that he is convinced the Turkish gunman who shot him in 1981 did not act alone and suggests that the former Communist Bloc may have been behind the plot to kill him.

Okay, campers. There's lots of work to do. All of you who were parading around playing the part of "unamerican traitors" because of the Iraq invasion need to buy all new costumes. Frankly, I'll admit they're wearing me down. I may go back to the Republican party simply because taking on a new personification of evil every week is far too exhausting at my age.
