Just in case you haven't heard the Pope is coming to the UK some time in September. Also in case you haven't heard the pope is homophobic. His recent comments in Portugal about civil partnerships and gay marriage suggested he was far out of touch with reality. Given the support that David and Nick as well as former PM Gordon Brown have given to the gay community in recent times it would be better if the pope stopped trying to tell the UK how to run it's self and concentrated more time in getting his own house in order. i.e., Stop his celibate priests having sex with small boys.
An other of his recent comments made inan end-of year address in 2008, he said that the existence of gay people threatens humanity as much as the destruction of the rainforests does and that "blurring" genders through acceptance of transgender people would kill off the human race.
Yeh, right. I haven't noticed the rise in world population figures (currently getting near 7 billion at present) slowing down by much since civil partnerships have been introduced in many countries world wide over the last few years.
On the bright side it looks like we could be in for a few more No Fly Days due to the volcanic ash heading this way. I say bright side because jet planes are being accused of doing more to promote Climate Change that the destruction of the rain forests. I notice the Pope isn't against flying around in a jet plane and hasn't yet mentioned the danger to the world in using jet propelled transport.
