Oh well,the " End of Days " lobby will be busy flicking through the collection of stories known as the Bible to see where this fits into their phrophecy...

end days wacjobs lol even if the Pope is killed it will have little effect. The last pope that people cared about was shot lived and died all for a god he didn't believe in. I have a belief lol that Popes know the truth and know they are just a figure head and a puppet.

Sittin back drinkin beer watchin the world take it's course.


The only thing god can't do is prove he exists ?

I think it would be a great tragedy (and I'm not Catholic) and it would add fuel to the fire all over the world.  In fact if there is one thing that could rouse Christians to violence - THAT might be it.  The trip was previously scheduled but he chose to go regardless the change in conditions and I admire him for trying to be a peacemaker.

You keep believing that my friend and all will be well. Religion resolves everything. Oh wait a peacemaker lol. Your joking right.  The best thing in light of recent activities in the ME is to sit his pompass ass down and shut the hell up. He's doing this to incite violence and he will get it. You know that as well as me.

That must be because somebody of your religion tried to shoot John Paul II. Before that there was no popemobil.

The fact that you find the attempted assassination of a pope funny just shows your level of intelligence and morality.  Your idiocy is showing little guy ;)

looks like morality only exist when non-muslims being killed
but when muslims get killed there's always justifications .. some morals :D

glad the guy made it out in one piece .. did he ?
coz if some " western " country were to look for exucse to do something. . they'll kill him there
and yep .. use some puppet .. say like osama bin laden .. and  the rest is clear

by the name of Allah the Gracious the Merciful
Say, "I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"
truthful was Allah The Most High And Great

You come out with some grade A bull.....

I never laughed at the assassination attempt, but I also have 0 respect for the pope. I'm intelligent enough to know more about the history of your religion than you do... So I must be a lot more intelligent than you. I'm also not stupid enough to let a religion cloud my judgement and views.

It's hilarious that you are speaking down to me like that, typical of a religious bigot. Maybe one day you will grow up and and learn about reality.

The christian faith is based on the belief in a man that was crucified on a cross - God didn't intervene and prevent that, so why would a "Pope" expect him to do so on his behalf?

Faith is not about circumventing cause and effect but comprehending the nature and of it - bullet proof glass is a pretty good comprehension imo.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

That somebody else acts like an ar$ehole is not a valid excuse to do it yourself, at least not there where they pretend to be civilized.

Wasn't that because God let it happen on purpose? Wasn't it part of the plan? That's the impression I get form the bible. Pretty much says that it's gods will if you are to die. So if the Pope had that much Faith in God who would beleive that he would only be killed if he was meant to be.

That's easy - you don't test God on these matters.  He has also placed the Pope in a time, place and the wherewithall to obtain a bulletproof "pope mobile", to say no to that is to put God to the test gratuitously.
