Pope, Mote, Plank, Pedophilia, Jesus

A word to Pope Benedict, straight from the Jesus, who was a good and wise man:

...why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
(Matthew ch 7 v 3; also in Luke)

Here it is in English:
Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye.

Dear Pope,
The "mote" or speck is your worry about gays and transvestites being allowed to work in the church. (I will not mention the feminine themes of much of your ceremonial attire).

The "plank" or "log" is the unresolved issue of paedophile priests.

"Hypocrite" means an actor, someone who is not what he seems.
