WATCH: The Pope Tweets

https://twitter.com/Pontifex/status/278808536404852736

An encouraging start from His Holiness, no Ed Miliband-style typos or accidental trolling of any of the other major religions. He’s no Dalai Lama though…

    “Could Try Harder”, eg:

    Carissimi, gaudeo ut loquar Twitter. Vobis gratias omnes animo de tua liberalitate responsa. Ex animo, vobis omnibus benedicat.

    His Holiness should have set an example, and prefaced his Tweet with “+JMJ,” as all RC children who attend religious schools have always been taught to place atop a page when writing. (For non-RC’s, it is a sort of “PBUH.”)

    Yeah, people are dying through starvation all across the world. You are contributing the population explosion. People live in fear of you and your mafia organisation.

    But don’t you worry, Ratzi, you’re safe in your gilded cage.

    Piss be with you

        you’re reading an awful lot into someone’s distaste for that pernicious, ridiculous archaic load of nonsense that is the Catholic Church (and it’s not alone in that amongst organised relgions)

        The likes of Guido might want to fawn over an old man in a dress and kid themselves that he’s God’s infallible representative on earth but the non indoctrinated amongst us realise the absurdity of of devoting one’s life to a book of fairy tales that has been written and rewritten by vested interests for hundreds of years.

        Libertarian Guido is seemingly fine with unlected church representatives installed in positions of political power purely on the basis that they worship a similar sky fairy to him.

        Seeing the insanity inherent in such garbage doesn’t make you a lefty warmist homosexual; it simply makes you less gullible.

        Feeble minded nonsense.

          You sound very indoctrinated (and hysterical) to me. Be careful, too much viewing of Dawkins’ website can lead to intellectual blindness.

            Im not the one insisting that followers of Dawkins (who I find intensely annoying myself) are given positions of political power am I?

            I’m the very opposite of indoctrinated, I’ll leave the blind devotion to oddballs like Guido and his fat mini me.

The Prime Minister feels the pressure:

“I have to say that after the events I have been facing over the last few days, assassination would be a welcome release.”



It was only a tiny tiny collision.
