The security bill for the Pope's upcoming visit to Britain is reportedly around £12 million, why can't he rely on his faith to keep him safe?

Asked by ucme (46208points) July 9th, 2010

Yeah just a thought, I mean his “God” would surely be the only guardian he would ever need. Saving the British taxpayer a tidy sum along the way.There are a myriad of worthy causes that surely deserve that impressive sum of money. Can’t have much confidence in the guy upstairs now can he?

The Popemobile has bullet proof glass. But when the man is on his knees, he may be preoccupied.

Mehmet Agah challenged the faith of Popes.

I think the Vatican should cover these costs, or they should bring their own security for in case the Pope’s “Protector” is inadequate.

the faith of all religion is false…..they simply cannot rely on it…because it is unreliable…
the faith of the true God is not within religion.

He expects the Africans to protect themselves from HIV with faith not condoms! I agree with you totally. Maybe that’s where the 12mill will be better spent.

Good point but faith alone will not protect anyone in this kind of society. He has faith in God’s love for him, I assume, but he realizes if he runs in front of a bus he’s toast.

Well, Dawkins will arrest him, and the faith approach doesn’t work in this case. He’s a scientist after all.
