Pray for the Pope? I think not

| 1 Comment

Millions of people are praying for the Pope's recovery, NPR informs us this morning.

As a hardline atheist, I have a problem with the prayer part, but leaving that aside: why would anybody who cares about the human race pray for someone who intentionally discourages millions of people from practicing safe sex and birth control? It just doesn't make any sense.

Ahhh, but what are they praying for? Perhaps some pray to their McDeity of choice for his timely demise? I don't know that it makes a difference though. I would be surprised if any of the candidates waiting in the wings have strikingly different views. Just another dealer of the opium for the masses.
