    in another 100 years or so...

    I guess he intentionally avoided stating that in order to experience any protests in the USA. Such a political decision he made of the timing of his statement.

    Who cares what he thinks. He is under the misguided notion that the world respects the teachings of the Catholic Church. I really hope he doesn't come to the UK spouting his hate rhetoric.

    Well, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it IS a duck.

    He should start by ensuring ALL priests found to be raping children get sent to prison and then keeping his big argie mouth shut about anybody's sexuality apart from his own. As if anybody would be bothered if he shags TMBOA.

    I am constantly amazed that so called intelligent people believe this shit, especially when they have this cretin for a pope.
