Pope Fact Of The Day #3

The state and organisation of which he is head has been responsible for: opposing the distribution of condoms and so increasing large families in poor countries and the spread of Aids; promoting segregated education; denying abortion to even the most vulnerable women; opposing equal rights for lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender people; and failing to address the many cases of abuse of children within its own organisation.


Another reason to celebrate the Pope's state visit to the UK.

I totally agree with the protests about Darth Benny's visit though I live on the other side of the world, and if he ever came here I imagine plenty of kiwis would be protesting too. It's just not acceptable.

I do have to note however that there seems to be a lot more dislike for Benny than there is ever was for John Paul II. Is it the Hitler Youth connection? The fact that it's so easy to compare him to the Emperor from Star Wars? Yes, he's done some horrific things and has some vile opinions (I hate the bastard), but so did JPII, the difference being that JPII looked like a sweet old man while this guy looks like the anti-christ.

In my opinion it's that he is a far more conservative, more extreme and dangerous cathaholic than PapJP2, that endears him to strong dislike.

i thought PapJP2 tended towards liberal inclinations.

If I am wrong, then it's his dainty designer red shoes skipping along the UK taxpayers red-carpet while protecting the paedos that differentiates him.

JP2 might have been the same, had it become so overt.
