Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

    Looks like Britain is considering one upping the US law suits. Personally, I think that the pope can be a head of state and still have spiritual influence all over the world.

    It's obvious to me that they do not feel the need to find atonement among their fellow humans, only if they find it in the sky pixy.

    I think we are watching the decline of the roman catholic church in real time.
     
  2. Utter bollox.
     
  3. And what chance has a German got of getting a fair trial in Scotland?
     
  4. I posted this on the Kiddy fiddlers thread this morning its all over the American press
     
  5. I hope he brings his pope-mobile. He looks like a tic-tac sat in that. Awesome
     
  6. His Holiness, or the Bishop of Rome, is a Head of State - forget the stupidity.

    Now, Blair was never 'Head of State', although he thought he was; and is now a private citizen. He could be arrested and in my dreams he could be 'disappeared'.
     
  7. I wouldn't worry to much, he'll probably get nicked in Malta next week

    I find myself agreeing with a petition initiated by Peter Tatchel.

    Rather well worded and more than a little cringe worthy for the Church, isn't it?

    He should have kept it a little shorter and zoomed in at everything that there is no defence on rather than wandering into embryonic argument.

    He'd get more signatures.

  11. Rubbish. He can't, as an individual, be held legally culpable for the actions of some of his club's members. The organisation could possibly be sued but not Eggs Benedict himself. Silly idea.

    Certainly will - they're a fantasy.

    You should try considering if there is any evidence for any of the stories in the bible. Indeed you will not find any evidence for the existence of Jesus.

    Presuming that you are over the age of 5 don't you think its time you stopped having imaginary friends?
     
  14. You've got more chance of a porno shoot in Mecca.
     
  15. [quote Thank you Father, but if the Island of Malta is anything to go by where out of 845 priests 84 have been accused of kiddy fiddling, 10% you must have a lot of Peado pals, [/quote]


    Being accused is not the same as being guilty.

    Edited for not being able to work the quote thingy
