    And for those who have a Habit of Loving IT, Long Time ...... ?

    Crikey, that would mean that it is only a short time before we can expect a Crack Hack into a Nunnery? Ode to Joy in Deed, indeed. :-)

    Apple rejected my iPhone app...

    It was simply a picture of El Pope, and when you shook the device his head bobbed about a bit.

    The reason for rejection was something about ridiculing public figures... Surely, El Pope has done enough to ridicule himself? Condoms cause AIDS, etc.

    Paris because, well, she would, just for the publicity and the blinged-up Popemobile.

    "create a close sharing network around our Pope"

    This merely confirms that anti-Catholic bigotry is the only acceptable prejudice left. It's shameful to see derision in what should be an objective statement of facts. The responses indicate the massive ignorance, bigotry, and prejudice that is all warm and accepting when it comes to Islam, the religion of hand chopping, wife beating, suicide bombing, and genocide, but rejecting the religion of Dante, Raphael, Michelangelo, Mendel, and other heroes of Western civilization.

    Would that also be the same religion responsible for enslave Muslims, pagans and other unbelievers... or responsible for inquisitions and the murder of many innocents?

    Maybe I'm getting my religious history mixed up here, but I was under the impression that both religions have a vicious, blood-stained past.

    You want a course in religious history? Go read a book. There's lots of good ones.
