I’d say on the ranking charts of things activists protest the pope has to be pretty damn close to the bottom if you’re hoping for some kind of point or result. Maybe it’s some kind of noob training ground for a later protest with an actual purpose.

I was hoping for Du Hast to be blaring from the procession while hundreds of beach balls are volleyed around.

I like the signs. As far as purpose, on this issue, it's a start. It seems like "keep your head in the sand" with that issue in the states (other than the unspoken eyerolling agreement), and this not having to do with the growing outspoken atheist movement, which isn't the issue I was aiming for here.

Protesting the merging of church and state, their non-chalant disregard of handling their pedophile "men of the cloth" and his stubborn stance of non-progression (having female priests, divorced priests, condoms) doesn't seem like a low form of protest imo. Then there's the whole "I don't buy your fairy-tale bullshit and I'm tired of keeping it a secret for fear of being judged" crowd as well.

These popes are definitely fakes- way too friendly looking and handsome when compared to Herr Ratzinger

that whole thing reminds me of another pointy hatted cult, with red and black insignias.

???? There is always choice (specially he was a teenager not a child when he joined Hitlerjugend ).... and any time any place is right to remind, reveal inconvenient truth. BTW. Interesting comment of a German journalist when Papa Ratzi was elected and his Nazi past exposed - " I am less worried about Ratzingers past then the future..." and indeed right he was. Actually those church haters should be happy, Ratzi is the worst thing could happen to catholic church, might be final nail into the coffin of this outdated enterprise.

Unless you're North Korean I don't think you can claim you know what it's like to live under Hitler and the Nazis in a fairly choiceless and brainwashed society. It's very easy to sit back and claim you'd risk imprisonment, torture, or death over your personal beliefs and principles when that's not even a slight possibility.

And this being the worst pope :roll: At worst he's kept the same agenda as the previous pope. If he starts launching crusades that kills thousands in it's path on direct orders then my needle might slide from status quo to worst.
