I think Tim Minchin summed it up pretty well... Thumbsup

RE: Today the pope said.....
The pope is missing an important point here. Free societies are only really free when they allow people to have and express unpopular and minority opinions. You can be turned off by the message of Charlie Hedro, or the Westboro Baptist church, or the Ku Klux Klan and still defend their right to be heard. The way you combat bad ideas is by shining the light of truth on them.

If religion, or racism, or any concept is a good idea, then it should be defended on its merit. Once you need to enforce your ideas with violence, you've lost the debate. Once you've agreed some ideas should be silenced, you've lost a free society.

Shackle their minds when they're bent on the cross
When ignorance reigns, life is lost

The Vatican is not a free society. It's a theocracy.

And the Pope knows that.

I doubt the Vatican has an extradition treaty with any other country.

Pope says to "expect a punch" as the proper response to insult. Did he forget about Matthew 5:39 "Turn the other cheek"? (see attached)

Can't hear you! Convenience urge incoming!

It is funny to hear cherry-picking believers talk about the deadly effects of words. Bullets are child's play next to words, people! Be quiet and put up with it, lest you hurt superiority complexes out there!

The pope hurt its so called progressive posture today Facepalm Had to happen at some point or another.

He was just grumpy cuz his beanie flew off in the wind when he was coming out of his plane. You have any idea how much pope beanies cost ?

It really was comica
The Pope lost his yamaka

Don't ask me why but I'm amused by the part where the guy on screen right is signaling someone to go get it.

When you go out in the wind with unsecured headgear you're likely to get it blown off. I bet a statistical study would reveal it happens to church leaders just as often as to lay people.

The wind takes his beanie and the rain forces him to change plans... you'd think he'd see that somebody is trying to tell him to just shut the fuck up already...
