I don’t know about you, but I am, indeed, a degenerate.

A German cardinal has triggered a storm of criticism in Germany by describing atheist art as “degenerate” — a term usually avoided in public discourse because of its association with the Nazis.
Cardinal Joachim Meisner was speaking at the blessing of his archdiocese’s new art museum, the Kolumba, in the heart of Cologne, on Friday.
“Wherever culture is separated from the worship of God, the cult atrophies in ritualism and culture becomes degenerate,” he said.
The word “degenerate” is hardly ever used in Germany today because of its known association with the Third Reich.
