Richard Dawkins: Arrest the Pope

The Pope will visit Great Britain in September. Should authorities there arrest him? Two of the world’s most prominent atheists, Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, “are seeking means to try the pope for crimes against humanity,” says The Huffington Post. Their lawyers confirmed that the pair is working together to arrest the pope for his role in covering up priest abuse scandals. While heads of state are usually immune to prosecution, Hitchens and Dawkins are arguing that because the Vatican is not represented in the United Nations, he can be tried.
