I don't care about the pope or any world leader to me they are nothing, pieces of corrupt vermin who deserve death. Berlusconi then the Pope.. let's hope they manage to take one leader out at some point.
more to these threats and attacks than meets the eye...
Uh...Hussein oppressed and was directly responsible for gassing his own people. I think a religious figure who is constantly trying to preach tolerance and an end to wars is slightly a bit different than a maniac. Also, any violence is wrong.

Honestly mate, there arent too many people that don't have strong feelings towards any religious leader one way or the other. You cant attempt to provoke them into a personal argument, I'm just saying in MY oppinion her actions were justified, Suddam Hussein was an old man
and yet I dont think many of you would have a problem slapping him down even though compared to the pope that man is a saint. Perhaps not the pope personally more so for what he represents.
Christianity...like any religion is a man made product. It is not perfect...it is fallible and susceptible to anything, I am not religious. But I have at least enough respect, and tolerate of others preference of it.
He's a figure head for an organisation that went corrupt a long time ago. Christianity at its core is admirable like any religion or society but after years of corruption and twisted teachings you just have to accept there are people not as blind as u.
I guess if you are a kretin and like to solve your disagreements with a good tackle to get your point across...then you probably see nothing wrong. I'll have to try...your reasoning at work or social functions...so that people will see or understand my point of view.

You tell me that you wouldn't tackle an old man if he was in the wrong? Or if what he stood for was CLEARLY in the wrong?
Yes...good point!!! This is the exact same scenario...here we have this old man threatening these people. It's a good thing red hooded heroine was there to save the day!
I had a man of similar age pull a f-doublelovinhell-GUN on me for not answering his questions properly when I was surveying utilities on his property!
Good story...Now please explain:
You had better believe that if the man had TOLD me he was going into his house to grab his gun and come back out and brandish it at me I WOULD NOT HAVE LET HIM DO IT! No matter what it took. Even if I had to tackle him. In fact, looking back on it, I would have beaten the hell out of the man! No, this man is not excused!
And Ratzinger did what to you or others? Please explain?
The things he STANDS FOR AND ALLOWS TO HAPPEN are unacceptable! And this SOB is latest in the line of ONE HUNDRED OR MORE JUST LIKE HIM who *HAVE* commited some of the worst attrocities this world has ever seen!
Yes, unemotional reasoning and great logic points to justifiable tackles. It is YOU and others here that are making unfounded reasoning and emotive gut arguments...what more can be more emotive then trying to justify a rude/violent act.
Hey, I love the emotive arguments just as much as the next guy. But only if I agree with them! ERRONEOUS!!!!

The garbage on this thread against the Pope is simply villainous.
No traditional spiritual leader should be treated in this fashion whether it is the Pope, the Dalai Lama, or the Hopi Elders of Second Mesa.
You do not treat the elders in this fashion no matter what your creed.

Just to be clear.
Which is? Do tell...
While I still do not condone tackling such a frail victim. I am specifically picking on this man because of what he himself is responsible for.
Why does this bother you so?
There is also that pesky HEAD OF THE CHURCH thing that makes him a representative of Catholicism to the world. You know pope is the big job at the top right?

So take away for a minute, about him being pope. You laughed at someone going into an old man of 83.
I wonder what you and your husband will be like at 83 when someone tries to assault you?

This is the problem with all of the anti-Christian hate going on today. Some flakey woman knocks down a frail 82 year old man, for what? That's just ignorant.

She did it for people like me who don't have the balls to do it. Ironic though that I found out recently that intellectuals tend to ponder on certain ideas that any ballsy gal could do in a sec.
Yeah, the symbolism is like tackling the "untouchable" Roman institution of tyranny, or whatever, but the message is clear. It's easy to bring it all down.
There was a post a few days ago by someone demanding that all religions be out down...
Most likely just another psycho atheist like we see everyday here on ATS.

There are no clergy on the board. The board is comprised of lawyers, doctors, professors, a reporter, educators, social workers, and a judge.
You can keep up the smart remarks but I don't make anything up and I don't post what I cannot defend.
You miss the point of the post entirely. The Protestant denominations in the US have had more abuse cases.
To this day, they continue to cover it up. The media is compliant in this cover up. Hence the post on a conspiracy forum.
