The Pope speaks out about Britain

...just look at this report!

He calls for "long standing British traditions of freedom of expression and honest exchange of opinion" to be respected under the law.


Throughout the first half of my adult life I heard about the plight of Christians in Eastern Europe who suffered from unjust laws which denied them freedom to express and share their faith openly. Now we face the same situation emerging in Britain, the country whose very name represented the word "freedom" in dark days in the 20th century...

Pray for our country. Pray that the visit of St Peter's successor this year will put fresh courage and hope into the hearts of all members of the Church here. Pray that our right to teach the Faith may be honoured and cherished, and the great tradition of freedom in our country be upheld.

Yeah!!, God Bless the Pope for standing up against that awful Bill. As childish as this may sound I hope he has some words with Harriet Harman when he visits in September :D
