I am glad that people are finally standing up to that brainwashing cult.
Organized religions dont pay taxes, They steal money from people, They molest children, They demonize people, They start wars, and they make a mockery of god source!!

Personally I'm more interested in the fact 70,000 people turned out to greet him, www.bbc.co.uk... than about 12000 lefty hot heads, who turned up at the wrong event.
Because the 70k turned up despite the horribly negative, media attention, blackmail that has been used to greet this pope. The 10 million government bill is well spent, because the Vatican is spending more than this sum stimulating our economy. As for the paedophile craziness: This problem has been known to effect a small number of people for years, bringing it up now is the BBC-Newscorp way of punishing the pope for a lack of liberal values.
I don’t agree with much of what the pope says, but I do agree with the right for him to hold his views without being blackmailed-pressured by equally undemocratic, but far more powerful (and “evil” in other issues like war-CO2 bs) people, than any religious leader, ever will be.
