Pope's visit


#281

Just tuned into RTE to see what’s going on. Classic line in the Pro where he is meeting married couples and couples about to be married. Asked about guidance on “the holy sacficife of marriage…eh, sacrament.”


#282

Sacrifice!!!


#283

Is rte responsible for the camera work ?
Him talking about children & camera cuts to family with baby. The pessimist in me says its all orchestrated.


#284

Pope mobile :joy:


#285

Did he make it out with all four wheels??


#286

Dunno. Apparently, it all kicked off when he stopped off at the Autobahn for a cheeky quick one. Something about free cocktail sausages and chicken fingers.


#287

It’s to make it easy for the average Sky News viewer. Like Fox News, they don’t want to confuse them by referring to anything outside their own little bubble.


#288

… is the right word.


#289

So no apology from the pope. No mention of compensation for victims. Or of opening church files to legal authorities. Or of simply obeying the law? No. We could have housesd a lot of people from 32 million.


#290

Noted.


#291

Don’t be so bourgeois.

Mind you, a FG government bringing him through Ballymun likes it’s Calcutta is very revealing, don’t you think??


#292

You’d have your work cut out for you getting from the airport to the Aras, without going through Ballymun, if you want to go the most direct way possible.

Incorrect. The Swiss Guard picked his route #insideknowledge


#294

We have Guards from Switzerland?

I thought they were all from Clonmel?


#295

Interesting.

Are they granted diplomatic immunity, like the US Secret Service?


#296

Swiss Guard from the Swiss Cottage.


#297

Yep, they’re calling the shots, the Gardai and Army etc are doing their bidding.


#298

In his Swiss.


#299

Roll?

No thanks, had a sambo earlier.
