Is the tailpipe unremarkable?

Oh, I get it. Because of the child abuse scandal. Clever.

And if there's a town they would need protection from flying bullets and other general criminality, its Tacoma.

Houston has a Popemobile at the National Museum of Funeral History as well.

That's just a limo. The popemobile didn't get invented until after the assassination attempt in early 80s.

I've done some security prep. (In the U.S.) The sitting president gets the most. Next is the pope. Then the sitting vice-president and major presidential candidates.

fredklein, It also says, "Thou shalt not tempt The Lord, Thy God"
If the Pope doesn't want pumped full of bullets in a public square, that armor seems only prudent and reasonable.
So don't jump off of any high places and expect angels to catch you, nor go without protection if you think someone may decide to cap your ass.

In other words, do exactly what you would do if there is no God but give him credit when your preparation pays off and nothing happens, right?

Anticatholicism = last acceptable form of bigotry.

SubjectVerb: Anticatholicism = last acceptable form of bigotry.


a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially: one who regards or treats the members of a group (as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

"his or her own opinions and prejudices " calls out to me.
I may be jumping the gun, not unlike a solid AGW sycophant, but it seems there is a popular consensus.
No problem at all with subing "self appointed sycophant" for "racial".

Better word?

If your cardinals would elect someone worthy of respect next time, we'll give him proper respect. Between his documented protection of pedophiles and his "old man yells at clouds" commentaries on modern culture, he's lowered the standing of the Church worldwide. His resignation is a cherry on top, since it basically undermines the idea of devoting yourself completely to your calling no matter how old or infirm you are. It just seems like he is a weak man for not giving his last breath to the office of Pope like his predecessors. If he can't shoulder the burdens that the Church requires of him, how can he expect anyone else to sacrifice. If the rumors of a scandal brewing are true, then his reign will go down in history as one of the darkest hours of the Catholic Church. He needs to be followed up with someone who can fix the Church and restore the respect that has been lost.

Lemay is a very nice museum for those interested in automobiles.
