Christians Are Upset That The Pope Is Not A Big Deal To Atheists

Not everyone is pleased to have the Pope visiting America

Pope Francis is apparently a really nice guy and I’m not just saying that just because I’m Catholic. According to those incessant polls, without which none of us could ever come to any decisions whatsoever, Francis is one of the most respected individuals in the world, and nearly everyone here in New York City seems happy to have him here.

Except for the Grinches Who Stole Christianity, that is, for every party, including a papal party, needs a pooper. And two of the biggest poopers around have reared their ugly heads.

The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) and Americans United for Separation of Church and State are petulantly, and unsurprisingly, unhappy about everyone making a fuss about the Pope.
If the Grinches stole Christianity, where are they keeping it?

What follows is the usual concern from FFRF and AU about the separation of Church and State. The article closes with: "Be sure to keep them in your prayers, folks."

I'll be less passive-aggressive. I share Tim Minchin's thoughts about the pope:
Nothing is sacred. Ridicule religion until it goes away.
