I am looking forward to the Pope
’s visit in the UK in September. His holiness, with his unbounded wisdom, will enlighten us with his views, or rather his God’s views since he is his representative, on morality
. Of course, his holiness is the most suitable person to discuss morality since he is a man of God and, well, this is where they have their expertise!
The man in the funny hat
; standing in his golden palaces; surrounded by unimaginable wealth; that drinks in golden cups; that despises homosexuals and pretty much everything else that doesn’t comply with some commandments, arbitrarily chosen by random peasants
two thousand years ago, and some dubious texts written by peasants (again) high on as yet unidentified drugs; that leads the most corrupt organization, currently deep into paedophile allegations and scandals; will give us a lecture on morality of all subjects… My irony fuse has just blown; for good.
The problem is, you can’t really say “if people want to listen to him, then so be it, they’re the ones loosing
“. You know, like when we say that homeopathy is a tax on stupidity
. Because, these people will then want to enforce these archaic, misanthropic views on the rest of the society, and make the UK some sort of a Kansas franchise
. So that’s a problem…
Further, what I don’t like is spending our precious tax money on supporting the visit of this man
The cost of the Pope’s travels and organising his events will be £15million, which will be shared between the Government and the Church. The taxpayer will have to pick up the cost of policing including protecting the Pontiff from hostile demonstrators. This cost is not yet known.
Fantastic stuff. I am paying taxes so that the Pope can get on his private jet and come to London for shopping new funny white robes from Harrods. He also apparently needs protection from the police, as if having God by his side is not enough (oh wait…)
