    AD 1493 those were the days when the Pope issued the Papal Bull that divided the American Continent up between Spain and Portugal.

    @2 A “bull” that wasn't accepted by anyone except Portugal and Spain. A “bull” that, according to the papacy, has no current relevance. A “bull” that is a short form for “bullshit”. Let's do the sensible thing and turn argieland into a glass slagheap. Then there will be resources for “proper” people. It's not as though argies are “people”. They can walk upright. So can apes. They have a “language”. So do apes. They have “intelligence”. No they don't. They are brainless turds.

    “Oh lord it's hard to be humble”.

    So happy he doesn't represent me or 60 million other Brits. What exactly has he done about paedophilia in the catholic church since he came to power? Maybe poverty and prudence are more palletable subjects to focus on.

    You say....:
    “I'm not Catholic, but I like this Pope....”

    I say....:
    Not Catholic, huhhhh....??? “Santo de los Últimos Dias” perhaps ???
    Besides.... what’s not to like about this Pope ???
    He is intelligent, determined and charismatic…
    In other words; a typical Argentinean ;-)

    Or the absent

    No, not religioso.

    I would have to add a few unholy adjectives to your list to describe a typical Argentine.
