Some days ago in italy the government passed a law that will discharge vatican from paying a new emergency tax that we poor people are forced to pay to "save" italy from bankruptcy. Also we italian people are forced by law to pay vatican 1 billion of euros each year. So please mr. pope SHUT THE FUCK UP at least. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25267122
The pope is such a hypocrite.
Perhaps we should look to how our Lord describes him and his ilk...
"Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all corruption. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous, And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.
Wherefore ye be witnesses unto yourselves, that ye are the children of them which killed the prophets.
Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers! Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?"
And for the record, the scribes and pharisees were the religious leaders of the day.
Apt, no? it fits the so called churches of today so well...
