    Will you just do some basic research for once?

    Just one time? Please?
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Technically, he was never a Nazi. He was a member of the Hitler Youth. He was a victim of the cult of personality that existed in Germany at that time. Much like what's going on in America, today.

    Are you a former Facist, because you're Spanish and Spain is home to the longest running Facist government in history? No, you're not.

    Nothing to do with the religion - this is about the man who ran the Vatican office dealing with (among other things) paedophiles and child abusers masquerading as priests in the Catholic Church. This is about a pope who while in office dealing with such priests, did nothing about American Fr Lawrence Murphy who apparently molested 200 deaf boys.

    Too bad neither the pope or the Catholic Church have been as quick to apologise or atone for what some of its priests did .

    And what do "liberals" have to do with a story about a pope who failed to act while heading a dept tasked with dealing with misdemeanours? Where's the political angle in paedophilia?

    Yes, I heard this on the news. What I didn't quite understand was how/why this was sent to the pope otherwise it was very amusing.
    George Monboit "Neoliberalism is inherently incompatible with democracy, as people will always rebel against the austerity and fiscal tyranny it prescribes. Something has to give, and it must be the people. This is the true road to serfdom: disinventing democracy on behalf of the elite."

    Look it's ok to attack Pope Arnold and the other Big Hats for not doing the right thing about the pervert priests but there is no reason to attack the basic religion.

    I agree.
    Why are we apologising to the Pope?

    Like he deserves it and if he doesn't come to UK. Thank God, we have just saved millions in security on him.

    Absolutely hilarious.

    Technically he was in the Hitler youth because that was what society expected. Now we have no way of knowing if he was pro Hitler or not, other than his word. And considering the amount "omissions" and "lies" that he has been caught in just recently, then well ... we are back to.. so he says.

    Why not? It is protecting these men and has done unspeakable horrors ever since it came to be. These are facts, and pushing them under the rug will not change the facts.
