How to get your visit off to a great start, eh?
The Pope's visit to the UK was under scrutiny to start with, what with the recent scandals in Ireland and elsewhere regarding sexual abuse by catholic
priests, leading to Irish catholics not taking up the full allocation of tickets to see the Pope (why should people have to get a ticket to see a
religious leader anyway?).
So now, one of his cardinals claims arriving in the UK is like the Third World?????
Firstly, he's talking absolute crap.
Secondly, using the words "Third World" as an insult, is not exactly becoming of a man of the cloth - shows what he thinks of the Third World, doesn't
And thirdly, he goes on to claim that the UK is filled with "agressive atheism"......so not believing in God makes us agressive, does it?
Seems to me that the Pope needs to get a grip of his inner circle - this guy is also German, so no love lost there between him and us Brits.
Maybe this is what happens when you let a (former) Nazi into the Vatican's top spot? I can't help wondering whether this cardinal was similarly
engaged in his youth?
They need to get their own - very much perverted - house in order, before they start criticising people who don't believe.
