Pope Announces Tough Tour
The Vatican has announced a tough tour for Pope Benedict XVI. The Pope will visit Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan this summer.
A Vatican spokesman said, “the Pope feels there is no point in him visiting countries where he just meets other Catholics, he is on a mission to convert. God has chosen him to spread the Catholic word and where better than the heart of Islam. If he can convert one soul it will be worth it.”
It’s understood an M1 Abrams tank is being modified as the Popemobile for the forthcoming tour and negotiations with the Italian Military for possible air support have been rumoured.
President of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad welcomed the visit, “…the Pope will not have to worry, he is a man of the book and he was a Nazi, I think we have a lot of common ground around the Jewish question”
The Taliban promised to flay him alive and cut off his head.
