pope benedict xvi Political Cartoons
We’ve gotten some crazy and provocative cartoons about Pope Benedict XVI in the last eight years. We have a great new topical collection on the Pope’s resignation called “The Pope is Pooped” – come take a look.
Lots of the craziest Pope cartoons came from Latin American cartoonists. There were lots of cartoons showing the German Pope as a Nazi, showing him as a devil, and showing him doing all kinds of things with condoms. Mexican cartoonist Dario Castillejos saw the Pope as an evil Holocaust denier.
This one by Cuban/Brazilian cartoonist Osmani Simanca depicts Pope Benedict XVI as the devil – a common theme.
