The new Pope

  Clapton is God 09:12 14 Mar 2013

Now that a new Pope has been elected I have the perfect first task for him.

Noting that he's Argentinian by birth he should take the next flight to the Falkland Islands and apologise on behalf of all his fellow countrymen for causing so much trouble and concern to the islanders for God (his boss) knows how long.

Whilst he's there he can also take the opportunity to renounce all of Argentina's claims to the island.

Yes, and he can use a flying pig to get there ;o}

Don't hold your breath.

But more importantly, is he any good with a bolas?

He and his church have 'more important' things on their mind, not telling two governments how to settle their squabbles. Perhaps the United Nations is for that?.

spuds like telling his underling how to behave round children and treating women as equals.

carver- plus many other things, that have or have not reached the media yet?.

When I was working around South America, there were many scenes of dire poverty, yet proceed through those outer doors of the church, and the scene before you, sure didn't put food in a belly or clothes on someone's back. It may have done for those within the inner circle, but not for the loyal and ever faithful supporter's?.

He has, in the past, come out in favour of Argentina's claim to the "Malvinas" at a mass.

See no reason why he should change just because he's been promoted.

The Argies will probably now say that God is on their side.

How many armies have had god on their side?

Bob Dylan had an answer to that question, QB :-
