The Root Of All Evil?

27 January 2009

I think we can say with some certainty that the Pope’s visit to Australia last year for World Youth Day didn’t leave him with much of a grasp of Australian vernacular.

He’s announced that the theme for the 2011 World Youth Day will be “Rooted and Built up in Jesus Christ; Firm in the faith”

Caused a lot of laughter in our house.

(Australian Dictionary definition:  “To root  – to engage in sexual intercourse”)
