    He normally is known as the Evil Pope but I will just call him Evil.

    Pope: I'll visit but I don't like your equality laws

    Also, frankly, I think the headline of this post is unnecessarily antagonistic. The Pope is making a relatively subtle point that happens to be wrong. His argument should be addressed on that level.

    "Evil is headed to the United Kingdom" does absolutely nothing to advance the cause of Equality.

    It really doesn't. The Pope's argument is that Religious people are being discriminated against because they are "forced to comply" with legislation that prevents them from discriminating in accordance with their conscience.

    To mischaracterize the Pope as "evil" is a nonsensical response to this rather delicate argument. His argument is manifestly false, and founded upon a misinterpretation of UK law, and it is on these grounds that he should be corrected.

    The pope's point is far from subtle: It is a blatant contradiction that is offensive to every gay person's dignity as a human being. As such it is wholly right that the topic heading not be subtle. I have no problems pointing out evil when I see it -- and any one who does such grave harm to so many people as this heinous "pope" has fully earned himself the title Evil.
