Actor Joe Rogan jumped aboard the vicious hate-filled and obscenity-laden pope-bashing train this morning. He started off by tweeting sample questions to Pope Benedict XVI, who announced that he’d be stepping down at the end of the month.
He’s so edgy and stuff! Except, you know, Catholics won’t riot over it. So, not very brave and edgy, is it, Joe?
Let's just take a moment to appreciate how so many people feel free to make fun of the Pope knowing Catholics won't riot over it. #tcot

The former host of “Fear Factor” then pushed the hashtag #questionsforthepope.
“Shale we,” Joe? The actor then tweeted a bunch of hate and retweeted nastiness from his followers.
Would you say you've spent more time murdering innocents or molesting kids in your time as leader of Catholicism? #questionsforthepope

#questionsforthepope How could you just quit? Do you have any idea how many strings I had to pull to get a Nazi pope?

Of course, Sarah Palin continues to live rent-free in their heads. That Twitter user wasn’t the only one who attempted to use the pope’s stepping down to slam Palin and the pope in one fell swoop; WaPo’s Cillizza beat him to it.
How much of your hateful prejudices came from the bible and how much was from your time in hitler youth. #questionsforthepope.

Hateful prejudices? Look in your mirrors, Rogan and Rogan fans. Heal thyselves.
