Francis Julian November 6, 2007 - 2:27 pm It looks as though Papa is trying to sell the sword to the Arab. His left hand holds on to the sword until the right hand gets the cash! John Book November 6, 2007 - 10:26 pm “Most ironic papal gift” My thoughts exactly. Where do you put a thing like that? A sword and a camel statue? Perplexing as the West may be, I don’t think the Arabs have the art of gift-giving down. Panda Rosa November 6, 2007 - 10:42 pm I keep thinking of the verse: I bring not peace but a sword. No doubt Pope Benedict will end up storing this next to the American Walking Stick. thomps November 7, 2007 - 8:33 am Actually I liked the walking stick with the ten commandments on it that Bush gave to the Pope. It was made by a formerly homeless man in Texas who is making them and selling them to earn an honest living. I thought it was a far more appropriate gift than most of the costly items that have been presented to the Pope including that sword. billTuba November 7, 2007 - 11:27 am Does anyone else think the Saudi King looks like Col. Sanders? JonathanR. November 7, 2007 - 7:35 pm Hehe, this is the same king who greeted Queen Elizabeth to the tune of Darth Vader’s Imperial March. (Thanks to those British Horseguards, lol!) What other gift would you expect the Emperor to give? It’s practically the Pope’s own lightsaber. 🙂 beng November 7, 2007 - 8:49 pm Picture caption: “Why prince, isn’t this the sword of Islam that’s been killing Christians for 1487 years?” “Yes, Mr. Pope” “You’re giving it to me? Why? Tired of killing? Dd my speech at Regensburg finally make some sense to you?” “No Mr. Pope. We just find a more effective way to kill you infidels. That is by blowing ourselves up. This way we get maximum damage plus maximum reward. More infidels killed, more virgins in heaven. It’s a win win situation. we don’t need the antic sword anymore.” Matt November 7, 2007 - 10:28 pm Just a thought. Are sure it’s a Papal gift to the king, or the king’s gift to the Pope? ?? Melody November 8, 2007 - 6:42 am IT’S THE SAMURAI POPE! Papa Benedict is heading out with a sword of truth to enforce Summorum Pontificum… Panda Rosa November 8, 2007 - 11:25 am Melody, I want to see that! He wasn’t called the Panzer-Pope for noithing! pattif November 8, 2007 - 12:24 pm Thinks: I know who I could use this on… Jeff Tan November 8, 2007 - 9:59 pm The Saudi king does not need weaponry to kill off infidels. The formerly Christian west has been very proficient at killing themselves and the next generation, no help required, thank you. 🙁 Comments are closed.
