    On its face, the sentiment seemingly expressed is wholly inappropriate but, the context of the statement is here not known.

    I give if five as it shows up the Vatican for what it really is - a machine that is oiled by hate and hypocrisy
     -- Robert, Sarasota     
    Hard to know what is being said given the lack of context... could be that they only want 1 agent for change every 2000 years, or that they admit that mistakes as big as their persecution of an agent of change is something that is undesirable... either way, it is poorly stated (as presented here).

    The Vatican is a Satanic institution, far removed from Jesus. I am Muslim and see this clearly. Today Steven Hawkings has been asked to not pursue some of his brilliant concepts because they would throw a few spanners into the "knowledge" that the Papacy fears could weaken its position in the world. They truly do not care for Freedom of thought and creative approaches to anything they feel they "own". Which is, in the minds of the Jesuits and the Pope, everything they can grab.

    Barbara if you are a real muslim you would know that Islam hasn't ever known unbloody borders. What has Islam brought that was new except by spreading it's word by the sword and torture.

    As an ex- protestant fundamentalist turned Catholic, I am unsurprised to see how much prejudice remains towards the Church in the world. After all it is easy to hate what you know nothing about. The same goes towards Muslims and Jews
