Das Pope is comin’ to town, and apparently you’d better not shout, better not cry, wear loud clothing, play music, or generally be a godforsaken heathen, or you’ll be breakin’ the law.

Considering most people I’ve hung out with here have been atheists or agnostics, the fact that this has barely made a blip on the radar really speaks to how generally passive this country is to their government. More than that, people seem completely uninterested in taking a serious stand against much of anything here, and issue debate seems limited to tabloid-like headlines and outrage over prominent public figures’ expense accounts.

But hey, the world doesn’t hate them. So that’s good.
