Based on nothing more than the long sick, sordid history on the Roman Catholic Sex Cult's evil practices of robbing children of innocence, the only way to stop its abuses is to completely and permanently dismantle this so-called "church", expose, try, convict, and jail its armies of sexual deviates, and distribute its obscenely vast troves of wealth to its victims. Only then will this twisted organization's practices of attracting, condoning, and cloaking the activities of sexual deviates come to a final and long-overdue end.
Well said.
This is how decent people respond to the Nazi pope, his pimp bishops and cardinals and their child raping priests.

The answer to your question is NO.

The Pope's visit to the UK has been highly acclaimed.

The Pope flew out of Birmingham airport at the end of his four-day UK tour.

He was praised in a speech at the airport by PM David Cameron, who said the Pope had "offered a message to each and every one of us".
'Deeply compassionate'

The prime minister, whose father recently died, continued: "When you think of our country, think of it as one that not only cherishes faith, but one that is deeply, but quietly, compassionate.

Earlier in the day crowds cheered in Birmingham after the beatification, was carried out. The Pope paid tribute to Cardinal Newman's insights into the vital place of "religion in civilised society".

In his homily, he also marked the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain by paying tribute to the those who sacrificed their lives resisting the "evil ideology" of the Nazi regime.
During the trip, Pope Benedict XVI has spoken out about what he called the "marginalisation" of Christianity and the march of "aggressive secularism".

Speaking in Birmingham, Mr Cameron told the Pope: "Faith is part of the fabric of our country.

"It always has been and it always will be."

Mr Cameron said people did not have to share a faith to see the value of the "searching questions" that the Pope had posed about "society and how we treat ourselves and each other".
"You have really challenged the whole country to sit up and think, and that can only be a good thing," he said.

"Because I believe we can all share in your message of working for the common good... and that we all have a social obligation to each other, to our families and our communities."

... and the Queen is German but so what?

Because some Christian supported Hitler you're trying to imply all Christians are Nazis.

You don't need a PhD to understand the faults in your 'logic'.

This is true enough but only half the story. There were 20,000 protesters on the streets and the British establishment (e.g. BBC & Mr Cameron) failed to represent majority opinion on the shame of the over-coverage of the event and that £12m of taxpayer money was appropriated inappropriately to fund this tatty event. apparently, it was also much smaller than originally hoped for as the venue appears to have been downsized.

“But amid rumours of cost overruns and fears of a low turnout, the venue was changed in June, to Cofton Park in the south of Birmingham, where a smaller gathering of 80,000 is now expected”.

Typical of religionists to ignore inconvenient facts though. That is presumably why some Catholics believe in transubstantiation. How silly is that?

But it was a good show and all good shows have positive spin offs which UK PLC will harvest in tourist revenue in years to come.

As for the 20,000 protestors ... you can easily excite a few thousand homosexuals to protest against the Pope. Who gives really?

Oh, ok, you're insane. I understand. Sad. Do your keepers let you go online periodically? How nice for you.
