Proof that during the 10th episode of the 7th Season (aired Aug 27, 09 in the US) they wrongly translated the words of Pope Benedict XVI.

He said "Che simili orrori non si ripetano mai più" which means "May such horrors never repeat themselves ever again"; but they translated, in their subtitles, as "Get used to it".

It's called hyperbole, moron... of COURSE he didn't say "Get used to it." Anyone watching with two brain cells to rub together knows that was not what he actually said, hyperbole being defined as "the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. It may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, but is not meant to be taken literally."

The point they were making - which you obviously chose to completely ignore (and cut out of this clip) is that the Pope's speech was meant to make people believe the Vatican actually intended to do something about this issue - which evidence shows, it hasn't.
