Papal Irony

Protesting students at a university founded by Pope Boniface VIII back in 1303 successfully get Pope Benedict's visit canceled. And the Pope's intended message "I don't come to impose the faith"
"Many things said by theologians in our [Church] history or even practiced by Church authorities, have been proven false by history. Nevertheless, it is true that the history of the saints, the history of Humanism grown on the foundations of the Christian faith, demonstrates that at its essential core is the truth of the faith, thus giving it a role in public reason."
Oh the sweet irony when the uninformed proclaim their shallow knowledge from the rooftops.
