I bet the protesters who held signs saying that "God hates the pope" where foreigners. And if they were they should have thrown them out of the country right then and there. Who the hell are they to protest. They should go into their own country and protest.

I believe the Pope to be an honest man. A sincere man. The American Catholic Church needs to get it's act together. They need to be more real and care more about their parishiners than they have in the past. When they say their doors are open to their congregation, the first words out of their mouth's should not be : "when did you go to church last". If you say not recentently, the priest will avoid you like the plaque. They need to be less concerned about the collection plate. They should not be demanding that you have to give minimum amounts of money to "join" their parish? What is that????? It happened to my father, they told him he could not join their parish unles he contributed an annual amount of money. I wonder how happy God is with the American church.

The Catholic church is the single weathiest group on the planet.They rape children and use there power to cover it up.Pope benedict is one of the people who in the pasts has helped cover up there
perverse problems . Next time they ask you when was the last time you attended church ask him when was the last time you raped a child.Then you should leave the church and never return.By putting money in the collection plate you are feeding there perverse power.

I wonder, could I buy a replica of the very luxurious Mercedes "pope-mobile" with that throne on the back seat, at my local, friendly, Mercedes Benz dealership? How easy is to talk about "freedoms" and other non-sense when you live in extreme luxury! Hey, "holy father", you should follow the lead of the real PRIEST, remember CHRIST, benedict?
