Benedict the bulldog

What do I think of the Pope's recent hateful comments that will no doubt give rise to new enthusiasm for homophobic attacks and discrimination?

Well ... the thing i've learned is that the pope has authority, but he doesn't represent all Catholics, pretty much the same as Bush didn't represent all Americans, Mugabe doesn't represent all Zimbabweans and Osama doesn't represent all Muslims.

What it shows, is that - sadly - the loudest voices aren't always from the best people, and often the people with the loudest voices, not the best character, end up in positions of leadership.  It would be a mistake to judge all those under them by their misguided behaviour.
