← Germany: Politicians plan boycott of pope’s Bundestag speech

AtheistEgbert's Avatar Jump to comment 13 by AtheistEgbert

Politicians are insane. The point about democracy is that it replaces the authority of monarchs, tyrants, dictators and emperors. So what is the Pope but an emperor in a dress?

Politicians have not only fawned at the table of tyrants, dictators, monarchs and tycoons but gladly line their pockets with their cash.

When will they learn? And when will we learn that we put them there.
