Topic - 'Argentine' Pope makes his position clear on the Falklands

chocolatefingers - on 14 Mar 2013
The Catholic Church has in the past come out with some very controversial statements.

But the fact the Pope, the head of the catholic church has now taken political sides with Argentina (yes he is Argentinian) and used some very strong political language in doing so, is shocking considering he is meant to be unifying catholic people, he feels it necessary to tell the people of the Falklands that they are not able to determine their own future.

I wonder how this will play out internationally, whether he'll try and rally Argentina's hell bent cause of annexing the Falklands simply because it's near them, and when I say near I mean about 500 miles off their coast, about the same distance is England to the far side of Poland. Using Argentina logic, the UK therefore owns Poland? regardless of what people in Poland think.

If there was any part of me that was Catholic (that's how I was raised), there isn't anymore!
