    Dear Pope. A majority of American people have spoken. Keep religion out of politics or lose your tax-free status. Tend to your flock in church and keep your noses out of our lives. Thank You.

    Dear Pope: You have been poking your nose into every nations business since the founding of yours. It’s about time that you look inward and clean up your nation’s messes before telling everyone else how to run theirs!

    Hey Pope! We human beings hoped that you would, at the least , act like a holy person and came forward with your long held knowledge that YOUR PRIESTS were abusing young children for many years. But, you showed your indifference to the children who needed protection by condoning the actions of the pedophile priests and covering up for them. Why, because you did not want to lose a big amount of money which you have now lost, along with any chance of being trusted and respected. How dare you try to offer advice to an American President when you are a shameful fraud.
