Pope's immunity could be challenged in Britain
Skeeve
Protests are growing against Pope Benedict XVI's planned trip to Britain, where some lawyers question whether the Vatican's implicit statehood status should shield the pope from prosecution over sex crimes by pedophile priests.

More than 10,000 people have signed a petition on Downing Street's web site against the pope's 4-day visit to England and Scotland in September, which will cost U.K. taxpayers an estimated 15 million pounds ($22.5 million). The campaign has gained momentum as more Catholic sex abuse scandals have swept across Europe.

Cool. That would be so cool, if the pedophile-pope was arrested for childraping....

Well, conspiracy at least.

Visit the Catholic fora over at Christian Forums sometimes and see some sick fuckers defending the Pope and Church from the "media witch hunt".

Conspiracy, aiding and abetting a criminal. I would prefer troop deployment to the Vatican to be honest.
