    Pope Francis plans on a trip to DC to become the first Pope to address a joint session of Congress. Knowing his stance on poverty and the fact that many in congress have already complained that he is meddling to much in the US this could be interesting. Already people started to say this could make many on the right very uncomfortable given his outspoken stance on providing more of a safety net for the working poor. That he has become an outspoken about US's stance in Palestine and that he has urged for more action in Africa and in the poorest areas of the world. He will likely talk about the potential dangers of out of control diseases and that Countries have to do more to attack the problem. Both parties are likely not going to be happy with many of his messages.

    With the growing Islamic threat, the Catholic Church will start flexing a lot more and the Popes influence will be much greater. Bank on dat.

    Both the last Pope and this Pope have both come out for massive Islamic immigration into Europe, and Benedict apologized for upsetting Moslems over his comments quoting a Byzantine chronicle about Islam.

    The Catholic Church is impotent in the face of Islam and does nothing to stop Christian massacres the world over.

    I think the Church is just like a political organization singing the tune it's told to sing, with a Catholic twist.

    The pope has no more spiritual authority than you or me. He's just a human being who has to scratch his nuts, blow his nose and eventually die the same as everyone else.

    That people are too domesticated to see this is a miracle. But it's not a good one.

    Never thought id say this but the pope is right on all those issues.

    We spend trillions and trillions bombing countries into the dirt when we should spend trillions making the world a better place.
