Then I says to Benedict....
« on: September 14, 2010, 08:50:51 pm »
Pope's visit to dear old Blighty, thought that would have been perfect fodder for a row, My view is that the old feller is perfectly welcome to visit but why we have to pay £12m for the privilege is a question that vexes me.

Scotland is shut on Thursday, I heard of someone handed a 19 page document of road closures rolling out up to 18 hours prior to arrival, Christ knows what London will be like (ha! ha!)

Then there's the child abuse issue which doesn't seem to be satisfactorily resolved, by any measure.

Chuck in a stint in the Hitler Youth for good measure, I know he was only following orders  and everyone else was doing it, everyone deserves a shot at redemption etc etc

Then the Popemobile, heavens to betsy, what's wrong with a snatch Landrover?

Is Blair involved?

12 million for the pope to visit? Paying someone to come visit for a while and then go away? Sounds like prostitution to me

And one last thing, the hat......its got to be designed for a rabbit, why else would it be that shape?

reminds me of the Private Eye edition a while ago, that showed on the front page a picture of the pontif giving his normal sunday greeting to the crowds in Rome and the caption, which I have forgot, was brilliant, was an answer to the child abuse issue !!!. :2funny:

Scotland will be shut because the Religious Divide is as bad as in Northern Ireland.

When my ex wife joined St John's the Episcopalian Church in which we were married at the end of Princes Street in Edinburgh her mother screamed from the pughs she had gone to popery!!

For those who don't know the Episcopalian Church in Scotland is the Scottish equivalent to the Church of England and the minister who married us went to Edinburgh from his C of E post in Gloucester.

So as you can see they need to be segregated to avoid the clans getting too uptight.  It could also become a little devisive in England too.  Personally I could give a toss whether he comes or not.  Interesting the tickets for his address in Hyde Park seem to not selling well!!

Oh, and don't forget the countless millions across the world who are condemned to sickness, an early death, widowhood or orphanage because of one mans refusal to endorse condoms.

Seriously - what GOOD does the ex-nazi virgin actually do?

same could be said about Blair after he started an illegal war....sent soldiers to kill or be killed. (and im not comparing this to the holocaust in anyway before anyone starts)

i have proof the hat was designed for a rabbit

£12 million for his visit and paid by the tax payers and this does NOT include policing.
Celibate priests ?
Let us go back to Noah's Ark. The animals went in 2 by 2 for one reason and that was to ensure the existence of their species.
When Christ said "Suffer little children to come unto me" he did not know about the dirty bastards hiding behind the shield of priesthood.
It is all a load of rubbish.
The Pope needs to stand up and publicly denounce these offending priests but he, like the rest of his clergy, is gutless.

Sing along-a-johnny:

Quote
Stained glass windows keep the cold outside
While the hypocrites hide inside
With the lies of statues in their minds
Where the Christian religion made them blind
Where they hide
And prey to the God of a bitch spelled backwards is dog
Not for one race, one creed, one world
But for money
Effective
Absurd

So the general flavour is of a warm welcome then?

"I really, really don't believe in God" as opposed to "I think I don't beleive in God".

A tough country, why, just because the majority of peopel now are willing to question blind faith and the answers given by religion are always found wanting:

'I don't beleive in God, no matter what you might believe or no matter how loud or how many times you say it!

  • Where's your proof a divine existance,
    Stop your endless preaching and quouting from the Jewish book of mythology,
    Leave that chior boy alone, oh dear was that a membership of a far right organistation i see lurking in the depths of your history,
    Can you explain years of religious genocide and war made in the name of religion , when your own 'rules' say turn the other cheek,
    Stop distorting scientific fact to try and prove a disjointed and discredited psuedo-scientific response to the thery of evolution.

    Oh, and by the way get off my door step, as if i haven't got enough to put up with without all this superstious b******s, that is in any case, left over from a time when the average life expectancy was 30 and only the elite were educated. when most people just wanted a comfort blanket from all the things that go bump in the night.

I shan't even start ranting about the population and aids crisis that is sweeping the christian areas of africa, due to the backward polices on birth control.

 etc etc etc.....'

I only learn't the other day that the Poet Shelley was expelled from university for writing a pamphlet on the necessity of atheism, afterwards he went off on travels with Byron etc

When he checked into a hotel the would sign his name Atheist and under destination he would write Hell

That man had style....................
