    But in Africa, in South America and in many countries in Europe the Pope is indeed a quite real political entity. Even in France, where Christians are laughed at most of the time, what the Pope says is often commented and can have some impact on the political world because of the long history between France and Catholicism.

    which parts of Africa or did you mean the whole continent?

    LMAO @ Little Kim

    Still, a few hours after he announced his resignation this happened - no kidding:

    Though not powerful enough to stop the governments in Spain & Portugal ignoring him over same-sex marriage or the Irish taoiseach calling out the Church in the Dail or majority-catholic European states from using contraceptives on a daily basis.

    BTN is in Scotland which is part of Western Europe. The Church is not a political force anymore there.

    Christians aren't laughed at, but it's a secular country and no, they don't have influence over the political system.

    Better get used to that one. The Prophesies of St. Malachy have been around a loooooooong time, and many have been waiting in the wings for this one. AAAAAAARMAGEDDON!!!
