ITN: discusses with Chris Patton the Pope's visit to the UK which is on and around the 19th of September and the Pope Benedict XVl is only the second Pope to visit the UK as the Christian world is divided into Protestant and Catholic and England is Protestant! A lot of people in this country are angry with the RC Church as a whole due to sex scandals in Europe but then I often wonder why we seek perfection in people since we are all so very fallible, however, we bow to the pressure of this sex scandal which is rocking all over the Catholic Church internationally. Chris Patton commented that rules and laws are in place in the UK to prevent such child abuse/sex scandals in this country so perhaps it might be useful to take a leaf out of the UKs book if that is not plagiarism then I guess its alright to do it.
The success of John Paul II which was in the 1980s during the time of the Falklands War was and is seen as a popular success for a Catholic Pope visiting this country but thats a long time ago!
The preparation involves getting the Pope Mobile ready which is a sort of bullet proof moving car which allows the faithful and there are 6 million Catholics in Britain, to see the Pope while at the same time protecting His Holiness from attack. The Catholic Church has a faithful totalling 1.2 billion and is the second largest in the world! All success to His Holiness Pope Benedict XVl on his UK tour and visit as I will not be in the UK as I am visiting Denmark for the first time! Nice work!
