Hasta la vista, Benny!

Well, Joe Ratzinger has departed our shores and returned to the comfort of home. I wonder what will be his impression of the British people. Will he have received the full impact of the disgust and anger he has engendered in many of us, or was he so coddled by the “great and the good” that he didn’t even notice?

Our Prime Minister, like most of the politicians who met with Joe, fawned over him and assured him that “faith is part of the fabric of our country. It always has been and it always will be”.

What gives Cameron the right to presume that? More and more people are deserting the churches, and even religion, so his  words are not only presumptuous, but inaccurate too.

But then politicians, like religious leaders, prefer the common folk not to think for themselves, but merely to follow their leaders, so maybe it’s just wishful thinking on his part.

  2. Surely the caption should read “once they get this high, they’re no longer sexy”
