So /// Stephen Fry, Terry Pratchett, Philip Pullman and Richard Dawkins are among more than 50 public figures who have signed a letter to the Guardian arguing that the pope should not be given the "honour" of a UK state visit.///

Roman Catholic, Religious or not,

Why should the Pope not be given the honour of a UK state visit, just because of the Vatican's record on 'gay rights', 'abortion' and 'birth control'?

Would they also criticise other religions on their various records of their faith?

Gromit, quite a few Catholics will be immigrants, especially Poles.
The hatred by certain posters on this thread towards the Holy Father and Catholicism in general is, frankly, quite staggering.

It brings me to the conclusion that sectarianism in Britain is alive, kicking, and rife, and that the posters concerned would probably have less hang ups about creatures like Abu Hamza being invited instead.
I've nothing whatsoever against the Catholic faith, i've said it previously as well. What I object to is a man who seems to condone child abuse. That to me is "staggering" that people still believe that this man wants the best for his minions.
