The ‘NoToPope’ coalition of ruckus supporters chanted, “The pope is wrong, put a condom on!” through megaphones. Some threw red-packaged condoms at the passing pilgrims.
Well, that’s uh… sweet.
“We want to make it clear that we are not anti-religious, and we welcome the Catholic youth to our country,” said Rachel Evans, a leader of the coalition. “Our gripe is with Pope Benedict and the hierarchy of the church.”
OK, so B16 isn’t the biggest fan of safe sex, but launching into obscene jibes and a handful of Trojans and Lifestyles is NOT the best way to get your point across. For grins, why not lube the streets in KY jelly to make the Popemobile crash into a tree?!
And I suppose by saying you’re not ‘anti-religious,’ that would include the rationale for this cutsy quote:
The winner — judged by crowd applause — was a crude reference to Mary, Christ’s mother. The runner-up: “So many right-wing Christians, so few lions.”
MEMO to diabolical diaphragm devotees (nice, eh): The next time you find yourself in a dark room stewing up slogans to picket the Pope, make sure you are not targeting one-third of the globe while you are at it – who just happen to visit the Roman Catholic Church from time-to-time. In the words of that stoic Western philosopher, Bill Engvall, “Heeere’s your sign!”
