Yeah. He should have let them pull him to the ground. And exactly what are his 'true colours"? Flesh hued?

What a stupid thing to say.

I would liked to have seen the security guards take better charge of that, so he didn't have to.

I imagine the words, "la concha de tu madre", were also said.

Hey dude, it's Mexico so "concha" is not used try a different word.

I just can't wrap my head around how some people worship this man, a mortal, as if he were some God, my Mother included.

They believe he is an intermediary for God
And have been indoctrinated to think so ...

Lets not forget where he is...a spanish speaking country like most of South America where the predominant religion is Catholicism. He's there to ensure the faithful stay faithful. Nothing like a Papal visit to keep the coffers rolling in money.

Not to mention they even speak the language and revere Spain at all because their ancestors were decimated by the conquistadors.

The Stockholm Syndrome still bearing mega fruits on a mega national scale.

Apparently there is a young man in a wheelchair right in front of him.

Had he been pulled off balance he could of hurt the guy.

You'd be upset too.

The problem of the pope is not the crowds who cheer. But those billion + who do not go to cheer. Pope promised reform and that reform never came. Perhaps he has more time to do it?

If you go back enough you can apply the Stockholm Syndrome to just about every country/culture in the world.
even yours I bet

Yah, its spread further than Stockholm, I think.

I don't think he handled the situation bad. If he wouldn't have said anything, they would have tore his arm off.

I like this pope better than the others, he is more of a real person instead of an idol. He kept shaking hands, the other popes wouldn't have even been shaking any regular people's hands.

He's the best pope i've seen in my lifetime to be honest. He's a good man.


Unless you know someone very personally you certainly can't know how good of a Man they are. Things are portrayed to the public and we interpret only.

The same video with subtitles...

It makes it a little easier to understand what actually happened.

Ah, thank you for that. I thought he was about to be pulled onto a child, but it was someone in a wheelchair.
"Don't be selfish", maybe means "let me greet this person in the wheelchair".

Maybe - just maybe - due to the pressure of being the false Pope he was literally caught off guard? My understanding is that Pope Ratzinger is still very much the reigning Pope and the Vatican employee in the attached video is the "damage control" person. Pope Ratzinger is being hidden well within the walls of the Vatican. How do I know? Well how do you not know?

In science: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

The cracks are showing and with the release of the movie Spotlight - the Catholic Church is fumbling. A man of God - as the person in the attached video portrays to a global society - is not as in touch with God as it would seem. For such a small slight he showed a lot of anger. Perhaps he is the one who should not be so selfish? Walk among the people and greet them all - not just those who are within his arms length. Why on earth does a man of God need so many bodyguards - doesn't his faith and direct connection to God keep him safe???

He has all day to spend with the people yet he chooses not to spend the day with them. Who is being selfish?

Much Peace - heaven knows we need it - Amanda

I am extremely anti-religion so to me the pope means nothing,except being appearance-wise a huge improvement on that previous..Thing they had-but if an elderly person gets pulled+pushed around,i am certainly not going to think it odd if he gets somewhat p-ed off.

My goodness. Your expectations are mighty high, and not without hostility.

If a 79 year old is pulled down on concrete, it's possible bones can break. He was understandably cautious. But think what you wish. It's one of those times when your comment might say more about you... then the person of whom you speak.

just saying.
