I now have some small amount of respect for this man called the pope. Although in recent times he has decided that Atheists are on the same moral standing as Nazi Germans, I have found some small hope for this man.
During the weekend the pope has appologised to everyone who was a victim of Catholic priests sexual abuse. He has also devoted some personell time to see a handful in person. Im not sure any of this will help in any huge way for his poplarity or the torment for the molested. However at least he has made the effort and is clearly human. He clearly is only attempting the best of intentions.
For that Mr pope you have some of my respect.
