Benedictine Condoms Ha! Ha!
Blessing a gay marriage Ho! Ho!
Opening an abortion clinic Ha bloody Ho!
I can see the piss take in these suggestions, I can see why Catholics are upset and I can see why some see the Vatican and the UK Government's reactions to them as rather sour faced.
But there is one thing in the list that I honestly believe is not a joke or a leg pull:
That the Pope should open a helpline for children abused by Catholic Priests and others in Church authority.
I would suggest that the person who threw this idea into the brainstorming event was serious, possibly even an adherent of Roman Catholicism.
As a non Catholic Christian preacher who has had to deal with totally unjustified tarred with the same brush bollocks over the last few months, I think that The Pope opening a helpline, or encouraging abused parishioners of all denominations to contact ChildLine 0800 1111 would be a very good idea!
