you can read the story here about the pope attending a film premier of a documentary about the life of JPII.
This picture strikes me as "odd."
#1 wouldn't you hate to be the women stuck sitting behind the pope? I bet they couldn't see ZIP!!! I bet the workmen who had to install that chair secretly bitched about doing that. "Geez, just this once...I suppose we should be thrilled he didn't ask us to carry him in like we were "native bearers."
#2 They're watching a movie and there isn't any popcorn, soda or Milk Duds in sight. What gives?
#3 Can't these people just "kick it" for once and show up in jeans, t-shirts and casual clothes like normal people? Why do they always have to be "on display" even when doing the simplest thing.
#4 how come the men and women are sitting separately as if they were in some Muslim hell-hole? I hardly think they need to be worried about some bishop putting his arm around some matron in the dark.
#5 And furthermore, it strikes me that the pope is taking a risk by being the only one sitting in a leather chair. I mean, come on...if you hear a "loud report" you know EXACTLY "who did it."
#6 why are these people watching a movie with the lights on
# 7 I bet there weren't any cartoons.
