Police say the house in southern Germany where Pope Benedict XVI was born has been vandalized with obscene graffiti.
Police said someone found the foot-high blue letters early Tuesday on the wall over the door of the house in the town of Marktl.

Police spokesman Andreas Guske told The Associated Press authorities will not release the exact words but “it was a defaming remark from the realm of the obscene.”
He said the words were not specifically directed against the pope, who has been fiercely criticized recently for his role in a what critics call a church-wide coverup of sexual abuse of children by clerics.
Notice how the state-run media adds the smear against Pope Benedict at the end of their report?
They suggest that the Pope played a role in a church-wide coverup when they know that is not true.
