John Paul II

Whilst you’re reading all of the tributes to John Paul II that will inevitably appear over the next few days, it’s worth bearing in mind a few things. Over the twenty-seven years of his reign this pope has wasted no opportunity to reinforce the catholic church’s medieval views on contraception, abortion, euthanasia and homosexuality.

Probably the only thing I can agree with him on is his oposition to capital punishment.

And, on a lighter note, don’t forget that according to Malachy there are only two more popes to go.
