Shut Up Fool Awards-Last Friday of 2012 Edition

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas Day and as you're aware of, we are rapidly cruising to the end of 2012.  On balance this was a not so bad year for me and I hope 2013 is an even better one.

Speaking of end of the year, this is the last Friday of 2012 and the last weekly Shut Up Fool award I will pass out.   Wow, seems like it was just yesterday I was writing the post welcoming everyone to 2012 and announcing our first Shut Up Fool weekly award winner for the year just 52 weeks ago. 

As for who will win the 2012 Shut Up Fool of the Year Award?  Check back with me on December 31. 

Now, let's get to work revealing what fool, fools or group of fools won this week's award spotlighting their rank ignorance, jaw dropping stupidity, and mind blowing hypocrisy.

Honorable mention number one is Pope Benedict XVI for continuing to hate on same gender marriage and now claiming that it's a wait for it, 'socialst plot'.  Lawrence O'Donnell blows that argument up.  

Honorable mention number two is a group award for the GOP.   I'd need another post to list their idiocy that earned them a group award this week.

Honorable mention number three goes to the NRA's Wayne LaPierre.  His solution to stop mass shootings is to arm teachers.   He said during an appearance on NBC's Meet The Press that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is have a good guy with a gun.   

Umm Wayne, how about making it harder for the bad guy to get the damned gun in the first place?

This week's winner is Italian Catholic priest Fr. Piero Corsi.    During his Christmas message posted to the door of his parish church in San Terenzo, Italy he asserted that women bring sexual violence and physical violence upon themselves.   

And y'all wonder why membership has been dripping in catholic congregations? 

Fr. Piero Corsi, shut up Fool!
