Hot news – the pope will address Congress.
Pope Francis will become the first leader of the Catholic church to address the United States Congress.
Francis will stop off in the Capitol on Sept. 24 during his week-long tour of the U.S., and speak to a joint session of Congress. House Speaker John Boehner announced the news in a Thursday morning tweet.
Why. Why will he do that. Why will the pope address Congress.
Why? Why was he invited?
Congress is the government. It’s a secular government. The pope is the head of a religious institution, and a very wicked reactionary woman-hating child-raping lawbreaking religious institution at that. Why invite him to talk to a major branch of government? Why break the long precedent of not inviting popes to address Congress?
This pisses me off. I don’t want our government sucking up to the Catholic church. It does that way too much as it is.
Down with the pope.
