What worries the Pope the most?
Could it be the AIDS crisis in Africa, for which he is partly to blame, that will kill tens of millions of people? Nah, that doesn't bother the Pope much.
Maybe he's worried about global warming, which threatens hundreds of millions of the world's poorest people with starvation, flooding and disease? No, that's not it either.
What about the fact that North Korea and Iran are developing nuclear weapons, and so many other countries like Israel, Pakistan and India already have them? No, wrong again.
Or maybe the Pope is concerned about terrorism? Does the Pope worry that terrorists could kill thousands, and maybe trigger another war like Iraq in which another 150,000 innocent civilians will be killed? No, that doesn't seem to worry the Pope.
Then it must be the pedophilia crisis, where the Pope's own priests and bishops molested tens of thousands of little kids? Surely that's top on the Popes list of horrible things. Right? Wrong!
The biggest crisis in the world is homosexual marriage and abortion! Got that?? According to Pope Benedict XVI, gay marriage and abortion are among the most "insidious and dangerous" threats in the world today.
The Pope worries that terminating a pregnancy when the fetus has no brain, not even any nerve cells, is a crime equivalent to terrorism. Can he truly believe that a young, desperate unmarried woman who has made a terrible mistake and seeks an abortion to prevent an even greater tragedy is a "more insidious" danger to the world than Osama bin Laden?
If two men or two women love each other and want to make a life together as a committed couple, the Pope says that their love is a threat to society. Gay love is right up there with AIDS, nuclear war, global warming, and terrorism – calamities that can and will kill millions of people. According to Benedict, these loving gay people are more dangerous than pedophile priests who have destroyed tens of thousands of innocent children's lives and happiness. They're a bigger threat than the corporate greed of BP that unleashed the largest oil spill in history and is destroying the Gulf right now.
It's no wonder the Roman Catholic Church is losing members in droves. The Pope is like Nero, fiddling while Rome burns. He has no idea what really matters. And when he does take a stand on an issue, it's immoral.
Here's a little bit of fun. Amazingly, this song was written in the 1950s! See if you can find anything in it that isn't still going on. Will we ever learn anything?
