Bono cheers the memory of the Evil Polish Pope

BBC NEWS: U2 lead singer Bono has paid tribute to Pope John Paul II, calling him the "best frontman the Roman Catholic Church ever had". They met when they campaigned to end world debt and both were nominees for the Nobel peace prize. Bono described the late pontiff - who died on Saturday - as "a great show man, a great communicator of ideas".

For the first time in my life I feel ashamed for the man that (still though) is one of my biggest idols. Bono is (like almost the rest of the world) sanctifying the The Evil Polish. What about all the stories of cardinals and priests who has been put in jail for sexual assualt on young boys? And the pope was silent or protecting them? And the liberation theologicans in South America who have been silenced by the pontiff and in some cases the Catholic church have stood up for the landowners against the poor people.

Are we just to forget all this? Just as forgetting his conservative line in the discussion about topics like abortion, condoms, the HIV-catastrophe in Africa, the HBT-people slain or beaten up by young Christians? Forgive and forget.

No fucking way.

Sick of the Christians of USA

I feel sick of the so-called Christians who totally dismiss the Terri Schiavo as some sort of symbol of life. The same Christians is putting the Bush's and the republicans in charge. They wanted to force Terri and her spouse to let her live even if the life wasn't worthy but at the same time they hail the American way in the Iraq. I feel sick.
