We are only human beings and don't expect perfection. That's why it's an accident. "We all stumble many times" (James 3:2).

Wish him well instead...

When I saw this on TV this morning - multiple time - I wondered WHY this was news. They didn't say what kind of 'break' he had. I had a smith break, have a steel plate in my wrist and was in therapy for 10 months. That wasn't on TV or in the paper or online. Neither were others who have broken their wrists. The pope of the catholic church does not dominate this country - we don't need to hear anything about him. Let the romans leak all this "news" to their own people - people who may be interested.

I am glad this didn't happen before the Dope met the Pope, and that Barry O. was able to get in his photo op.

But a good portion of this country is Catholic so, when the pope breaks a bone a good portion is interested in knowing. I find it ironic how this article doesn't interest you yet, you read it, and even had to comment on it. Congratulations on putting in extra effort into a subject that you're not interested in.

The Catholics in the name of the paedophile Pope killed my entire familiy in 1973 for refusing to become Catholics. It was about time that a paedophile Pope from the Vatican got a taste of his own medecine. I hope that the paedophile Pope gets a cancerous Tumor so that he becames a Drug Addict and die of an overdose. Satan the Devil the creator of the Roman Catholic Church will not help the paedophile Pope because he got problems of his own.
Troll. Can't even spell pedophile correctly. Sounds like they missed one in 1973....

FYI, the Pope is the leader of the Catholic Church and is a world leader, so that makes this news in the US. And I would guess that they misplaced the steel plate in your wrist and it wound up in your brain instead. Too bad.

While I'll agree that the original poster was coming out of left field, where exactly did you derive "racism" from his post???
