Bangalore Herald, Bagnalore, India: The Pope in his annual drivel to the world is convinced that his God is full of surprises this year as Christians begin to celebrate his son of God, Jesus (who?).
Most US, Brits and other Europeans only see his God twice a year, Easter and Christmas, if they want to (?), but only if they're not too busy boozing it up at their annual Chrissy parties, over-spending their credit card limits or over-filling their bellies with no-good goodies.
But his God has promised lots of goodies this year also: Global poverty, wars, the Israel versus Palestinians pantomime, population explosions, the rich getting fatter and fatter, X boxes, I pods, mobile phones, environmental pollution in booming economies like India, China, etc.
So the Pope, according to his God is doing pretty well and has offered his sheep mega-bonuses this year.
As for the rest throwing bombs at Christian nations (and each other!) well, they don't seem to believe any of the crap that spills out the Pope's mouth annually (and the Queen's for that matter too).
The Vatican is a perfect example of global corruption and just happens to be one of the epi-centres of it and the Pope is their leader? What else should one expect from his God on Christmas Day!
