I can only imagine why the powers-that-be in the Vatican thought this ‘service’ would be a good idea … sure, the dwindling faithful will text messages of support etc. but I think that the service will simply become unusable very quickly with the amount of abuse and profanity that it will receive.
Of course, the aides in the Vatican are then going to filter the bad ones out and only pass on genuine messages to the man in the funny hat but still, they might spend more time than they think weeding out a significant tirade against the man.
And while I’m on the subject of the Pope (is he still infallible on all things by the way?), he has come out (oops) yesterday in Portugal and said that gay marriage is “an insidious threat to society” … full stop. What ? So some men or women choose to sleep with other men or women and you feel threatened ? And you think the whole world is under threat from this ? Come on for f*ck sake !!
What business is it of his who a person chooses to sleep with ? Does he think the entire world might suddenly turn gay and there’d be no children bred forevermore ? … read, no more Catholic children to go to Mass and keep eejits like him in a job !
I mean in this day and age, he should really just shut up about things he knows nothing about !
