Popey guy beyond irony

This, from the head of the organization that brought the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition to the world:
Pope Benedict XVI . . . insists that violent uprisings must never be carried out in God's name in a new book being released Thursday amid great fanfare at the start of Lent. 
 And later:
"The cruel consequences of religiously motivated violence are only too evident to us all," he noted in the book.
Truly beyond irony.
