Perhaps a tounge-in-cheek attempt at a 'humourous' document and not the best judgement. Interesting to see how the Catholic church reacts to this given the recent scandals about child abuse cover-ups and their head-in-the-sand approach to abortion and condoms.
Like a lot of religions not good at taking on new ideas and getting with the times to actually help people.

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
Oh FFS, it was someone blowing off a bit of steam, perhaps the Catholic church needs a wake up call, hundreds, thousands of years as a massively powerful, massively rich and huge organisation who have dictated a way of living to millions of people, a way of living that is out of tune and just wrong for todays society, whilst lining their own pockets and behind closed doors committing grave sexual crimes, as usual with religion because it's "old" we all have to treat it with reverence, come on, it was invented by men a long time ago, men less enlightened than we are now, alot has happened since then.
I am sure if the almighty does exist and created everything then he would have more of a sense of humour than the average po faced religous leader, after all, look at some of the creations he is supposedly responsible for, Proboscis Monkeys, Sea Slugs and some of the posters on here.
I suspect its the Foreign Office getting in a tizzy, doubt the Catholics even noticed, too busy eyeing the young poppets on the front row of the choir, ding dong.....
I don't really know Jacko, but was it the Vatican which did all the complaining, or was it the Press making capital by hopping it all up when it was leaked? I thought the Vatican did not want to make a big fuss about it.
