Now you see with eyes unveiled by tradition
Clearly do the seraph songs fill your ears
A paean to your life before the Father
Celebrating your joyous entry
Into the bridal feast in joy
Your Bridegroom's arms outstretched

Peace, elder brother.
Whisper to Him of us.

Egypt now is a little bit less civilized. A brave man, a great man is now with the Father.

He is not Muslim. As Christianity wanes, society also wanes.

Considering what the rampant Christophobic bigotry has done to the US and Western Europe, I'm surprised by your comment.

Religion has never solved anything, and it has had lots of time in which to do it. Society has never received anything from religion.

It was not atheists who flew those planes into the Twin Towers, it was religious fanatics.

The sooner we have a population that is aware of the false nature of religion the sooner we can move on.

Might be an idea for you to make an educated statement. You made yourself look pretty ignorant. Give me evidence of this Pope being a "nut." If anything, this Pope cared nothing for anything other than caring and love of others. Having looked into him online, go and see his last sermon about true wisdom. Love others, serve others. Not sure what's so fanatical about that.

And by the way....ignorance (such at the ignorance that you have displayed) is far more detrimental to society than any religion. Where do I begin?
