SUrely this is a misprint?

Isn't it meant to say 'Pope covers up abuse of christians, helps hide poaedophile priests and used to be in the hitler youth'.

Lets not forget 'Pope encourages poor black people to catch AIDS by sending missionaries to teach that condoms have no effect'.

How about 'Pope says condoms may be justified in the case of male prostitutes but encourages rapsists to spread STD's'.

The Pope is wrong to call mass murder of Christians by Jihadist Muslims in major suicide bombing attacks in Egypt and Iraq an "abuse".
Similar to persecution and cold-blooded murder of millions of innocent Jewish kids, men and women under the Nazi regime of Hitler during WWII, Christians since Obama’s January 2009 inauguration became the new unprotected and deserted victims of brutal and savage Islamic killers in the name of the political religion of Islam.
Evidently, the Jihadist Muslims are emboldened by the fake African Imam Obama of the White House to fight the infidel Christians that are the enemies of Islam. According to Iraqi daily Imam's incitement again Christians and calling them sub-humans and pigs according to the Quran, Christians are preventing the Supremacy religion of Islam as political power that is ruling the Middle East and the world. Our US troops that fought the Islamic terrorists in Iraq since 2003 and sacrificed more than 4000 brave US troops in Iraq are in the process of pulling-out of Iraq and letting Iranian and Saudi Arabian radical Islamic regimes taking over Iraq and pushing it to be ruled under the Shariya Jihadist laws of Islam. Islamic Shariya laws were originated by the shepherds of the nomad tribes in Saudi Arabia desert in the 7th century.
According to Shariya laws, Christians are sub humans and has not human rights and they must obey to the rules of Islam. However, the fake Christian Imam Obama of the White House who fights daily for the rights of Jihadist Islamic terrorists that killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 cannot will never stand up to the Jihadist Muslims and will never protect the Christians in the Islamic world that are attacked and abused on daily basis by Jihadist Muslims that seek their conversion to Islam by the sword.

Not having sex at all would be more effective than condoms, but I guess you don't think black folks can control themselves.

Maybe if Christians would mind their own damn business?
As far as I can see, here in the US, only Christians try to impose their religion on others. Here in LA, we have people of all faiths. No Jewish person has ever harassed people for driving or working on Saturdays or tried to make it against the law to drive on Saturday. Haven't seen Muslims harassing women for not wearing head scarves, or trying to make it illegal not to wear one. Only Christians try to impose their beliefs on others.
They even harass people at funerals.

Well, wait until Armageddon, and watch what happens to the organized 'Christians.'

But then, you Marxists will then get a little more than just uneasy.

since the article is about the Murder of 21 Christian in Egypt, and you both try to change the subject fail to condemn the bombing I can only conclude you think the murder of 21 Christians was a good thing.

ROTFLMAO Really? Been out of your house lately. Its the leftist. liberal secularist who keep trying to force their views on everyone else. I never at work or school been forced to attend a Christian indoctrination course but I have been forced to set through many a leftist/liberal "Political correct" training course. the Soc called Politically Correct movement is far more aggressive at trying to imposing its world view on others then Christians are.

Did you control yourself?

No sex before marriage?

If you did that means you are almost certainly sexually dysfunctional and definately one of the most boring people on earth.

Still, if you feel you need to recieve sex education from a virgin who supports child molestation, kills tens of thousands every year by supporting the spread of AIDS and wears a dress then you're obviously more than just sexually dysfunctional.

You christian crazies live for destruction of our planet by thinking a mythical man on a horse is going to show up. Just think, your Jesus died in vain if it wasn't for you crazies doing the SINNING by damning everyone who don't bend to your ridiculous fables, and your RCC wouldn't be bringing in any revenue for all the SINNING either.
