Eat what you like, wear what you like ,speak in any tongue you like(except forked).You can even choose the Saturday night option on Mass without being condemned to Hell(Clearly His Popliness hasn't factored in the number of Pop Idol fans among his sheep) to facilitiate a lie in on a Sunday morning(no shagging your partner though unless you wish to procreate)


Oh yeh and what about......don't prevent the further spread of fatal disease in Africa by providing condomes;do keep setting up Missionary outposts and taking a collection from the poorest people in the world.His Popliness would like another Botticelli or a few cwt of gold bars to gather dust in the Vatican........ update the Art collection while another Aids baby dies or another famine or flood *****s up another poverty stricken country of committed Catholics..............
So, you are fairly neutral about the whole thing then...?

Hmmmm, a hedge. I like the green ones as long as they are not too big.

Love this one: "Even a band of angels can turn ugly and start looting if enough angels are unemployed and hanging around the Pearly Gates convinced that all the succubi own all the liquor stores in Heaven."

Please feel free to substitute whatever you call angels/prophets/pearly gates/succubi for whatever you want...including football teams!

Think I went there a long time ago ............ and even if I didn't, I will be now that my kids in Italy are NOT taking part in the weekly catechism classes that then prepare them for First Holy Communion and then Confirmation.

At least I know the local priest wll never knock on my door again.

He's probably praying for my salvation and the safe keeping of my kids !!!!!!!!!!

More money is spent globally on weapons and arms than on HIV/AIDS research and medication, etc. which is ridiculous and criminal really.

If people from poor or developing nations have no access to life-prolonging medication, then probably the only other alternative to control or reduce the spread of the disease is education and condoms - let's be honest, abstinence from sex is just not going to happen.

Messages like this from people such as His Holiness have to be amongst the most irresponsible load of crap being spouted, absolutely unforgiveable.

Can we stop referring to him as His Holiness please?

It may be his correct title but it implies something far bigger and more important than he actually is.

Yup - the Catholic Church is still promoting abstinence as a better way to fight HIV than condoms.

So basically they want people to use their willpower and go against human biology by not shagging except for procreation...and in doing so they are encouraging millions of Africans to roll the die every time they have a lapse in self control.

They need to wake up and enter the 21st Century...like all religion.
