The Pope-a-dope... The Pope IS A DOPE.

We need to GET RID OF OUR AMBASSADOR TO THE VATICAN.
Oh, did you even know that we HAVE an AMBASSADOR TO THE VATICAN???!!!
Those few acres of Vatican City, those few city blocks ENTIRELY WITHIN THE CITY OF ROME {which is of course entirely within the country of Italy}, has the NERVE to call itself a "country"!!!???!!!
We have a U.S. ambassador to Vatican City - about a thousand people, most of them Catholic clergy, live in this ha ha "country".
And the Vatican has an ambassador to the U.S.
ALL OF WHICH COSTS U.S. TAXPAYER MONEY TO SUPPORT!
And moreover, the Vatican has "observer" status at the United Nations - which NO OTHER RELIGION HAS!!!
THIS is how the Catholic Hierarchy and the Pope-a-dope, HOLD ON TO THEIR UNWARRANTED POLITICAL POWER.
How they influence legislation all over the world, in a NEGATIVE way!

STOP having a U.S. "Ambassador" to a religious entity - STOP them sending an "Ambassador" to the U.S. - and STOP the United Nations Observer Status of the Catholic Church. STOP their basically Fascist policies thruout the world.
Yes, and STOP the Pope ENCOURAGING Ivory Poachers to make money killing elephants for their Ivory; the Blood Ivory knick-knacks, trinkets and religious items for the Catholic church are perfectly okay and blessed and sanctified by the Pope-a-dope. He and all the Pedophile-covering-up Gay-hating Catholic Hierarchy and Bishops are on so many levels, MORAL IMBECILES!!!

What a great post. I did not know all this either. The Pope should be ashamed of himself along with every other ivory 'poacher' Why refuse to sign the Cites Treaty? Appalling behaviour.
