Mr. Ratzinger (the Pope) has managed to get Christians arguing
Advertisements [?]
with one another on the local newspaper's discussion board. As one person recites their version of history, another person recites headlines about pedophiles and cover-ups, Inquisitions, and Crusades. Good thing these people aren't in a room with one another. It is no wonder to me why non-Christians wish the whole lot would get raptured away when they get through laughing at them.
