36. As the world rips itself apart in bloody religious conflicts, Pope Ratso has the vision & courage...
to declare that all religions...


... and people of all faiths....

can stand united, as equals...

... and all be damned to Hell together if they're not Catholic.

Thank you, Pope Ratso.

Now, the world can be United as One again.

Now I know why god chose you.

You have healed us.
