Every Time He Opens His Mouth . . . .20 March 2009
The Pope is currently travelling around Africa banging on about things about which he appears to be totally ignorant. Apparently, the ever-increasing rise in HIV/Aids is of concern to him. BUT:
The solution lay, he said, in a “spiritual and human awakening” and “friendship for those who suffer”. (BBC Website)
Well, we all need friendship, particularly if we’re desperately ill or dying. But the SOLUTION? I think not.
And then we have this classic:
The Pope also warned of a threat to the Catholic Church in Cameroon from evangelical movements and from the “growing influence of superstitious forms of religion”.
Superstitious forms of religion?
I wasn’t aware there was any other sort.
