He says he is sorry and then continues to hide their identities. It's like saying "Sorry for teasing you, big ears".

English? Why not Castilian or Catalan?

@ Callinectes: Castiliand and catalan are also ok; but I do not want to discourage anybody from posting their thoughts and, after all, somebody can do the translating later if needed...

  • Mark 9:42 - What Would Jesus Do?
  • Easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for the head of the richest per capita state to enter the kingdom of god.
  • Secular justice for spiritual rapists.
  • I hope you've got your story straight for St Peter, because "I was just following orders" isn't going to cut it.
  • Secularism is not to blame for the decline of the church; the decline of the church is to blame for secularism.
  • Ratzi the Nazi, complicit in child rape and the deaths of thousands of AIDS victims.

    The Moviment Laic i Progressista:Tel.936 011 631. is organizing a demonstration on 4th November against Old Ratzi's visit to our city, three days before his arrival in town. If you want to get in touch with them,see their phone number and email above. Also, if you google Ateus de Catalunya, they'll inform you about other events and reunions on atheism.

    Criminals can't lecture on morality.

    Pope Ratizinger the Hypocritical.

    Bigots can't lecture on morality.

    The intolerant know nothing of morality.

    The pope prefers killing to condoms.

    Anyone else would be prosecuted.

    Science has changed in 4000 years. Get used to it.

    "He who oppresses the poor to increase his riches, and he who gives to the rich, will surely come to poverty." ~ Proverbs 22:16

    "If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me." ~ Matthew 19:21

    "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" ~ Mark 8:38

    We also had the same problem when he came to Portugal.

    Perhaps slogans that can only be understood in Spanish would be more effective. One slogan that was discussed here was:

    "Com papas e bolos se enganam os tolos"

    Which literally should be something like "With food and cakes the fools are fooled"

    But the word "papas" also means popes, so it could be read as:

    " With popes and cake, the fools are fooled."

    Perhaps there is an equivalent in Spanish, or something along those lines.

    How about:


    10,000 priests 1,000,000 abuse victims 0 consequences the pope in jail .. priceless

    why not try:



    The only true sodomites I know are wearing robes and collars. They should be wearing leg irons and shackles.

    or If it were dogs they were raping more people would be angry about it.



    Sorry about that last one, it is a favorite of mine ;-)

    tanweer it is a FUN discussion. For fun. And the only thing irrational about the situation with the pope involves HIS side of the fence. If I (we) am (are) critical of him it is for valid reasons. No one is forcing you to this strand. Go to another that is more to your liking.

    1. It does not have to be both.

    2. It is rational to challenge the Pope being warmly welcomed anywhere given his appalling complicity in covering up appalling crimes.

    3. It would be both irrational and immoral for thinking people to pretend to ignore that.

    4. If however you want to bring science into it as well, the forensic evidence suggests Ratzi's fingerprints are all over the paedophilia cover-ups. The church will not get an easy ride as long as he remains in office. Nor should it.

    How about this one?: New Yorkers, take a stand! Give the Pope a good in-your-face New Yorking!

    Okay, I admit that's lame, but I think the next time the Pope visits NYC, he should get an in-your-face New Yorking, complete with a drop-kick into the East River. ;)






    Just FYI, "pedo" is "fart" in Spanish. :)
