Ooh so much activity since I last was here.
Anyway I'm just going to add my two cents about the video - I would rip up a bible to make a point.
Sure it may seem insensitive, but is it really? Destroying a book does no destroy someone's faith, even if the symbolism implies it, it is just a book. If I were to rip up a Harry Potter book in front of an avid fan they would probably be mad, but the majority of people would think they were being silly, no?
And realistically, if the Pope can dictate people to be sinners, say people of certain lifestyles are wrong - which is worse?
Actions speak louder than words. He was just making a point.
