The Popemobile

PopeMobileAn issue that is troubling me is the new Pope-mobile (left).  I, a non-believer, have always been willing to listen to people on the other side (religious people).  I am willing to let them tell me of all the proof that Jesus really existed and was the son of god, and I am more than willing to let them know where there are flaws in their reasoning and where they are factually simply incorrect.

I would assume that, if there was ever a believer in that nonsense, it was the Pope.  As a young boy he was a Nazi soldier, he was head of the “Propagation of the faith” (used to be known as the “inquisition”), and later in life he covered for pedophiles.  If I were in his position, my conscience would have told me for all three of those issues, “Don’t do it!”.  Presumably he had direct communications with a higher authority, who said, “Do it”.

Well, that was in the past.  His current actions disappoint me.  I would assume that a man who was so blessed would trust in god, but here he is getting an armor-reinforced vehicle with bullet proof glass.  What is going on here?  He shouldn’t need that.  Trusting in his god has served him well.  The popemobile is for wimps — or us non-believers!

  1. The followers of Christ were all doubters starting with Peter. The saints of the church without exception doubted God at one time or another. Yes, this Pope is a doubter. Nothing new.

  2. Maybe he is hoping that bulletproof glass can stop the wrath of God.
