Pope is 'too holy' to save us.

Apparently being Pope absolves you of all need to care about the fortunes of other less fortunate souls. His Holiness has moved to squash the despicable rumours that he carries a donor card, with his private secretary stating that now he was head of the Catholic Church, his organs would be not be available for transplant.

You'd have thought he'd want to make up for all the lives he's ended as a result of his stance on condoms.

The Independent article is here.

All this coming of course after a speech three years into his tenure as Pope where stated his support for donation at an international congress. It would seem yet another case of 'do as I say, not as I do'. And just when I thought I'd at least found one reason to respect him. Oh well.
