Australian Al Qaeda

For those of you who thought Australia to be the safe place to go to away from all of the terrorist madness engulfing the world, well, they seem to have their own homegrown terrorists too. The Bastards are everywhere but the Vatican, which sucks, because you can not immigrate to the Vatican.

Nothing sickened me, and many other Aussie, than hearing that poison being spat out with an Australian accent. ASIO, Australia's version of the CIA is investing to discover if this is really is an Australian but I fear there is little doubt.
Once again it shows that there is no safe place and all of us, especially now Australia, have to make our citizens understand that if you want to live in a free country you must live by its laws.
Assimulation used to be a dirty word but at least then people who came to Australia came to be part of a free and harmious society. Not to import hatred from elsewhere and breed the hate here.

Think of it as a target rich environment.

Maybe you CAN migrate to the Vatican.

The Vatican is, or used to be, the most heavily militarized state in the world: about 20% of the population consisted of the Swiss Guard. Although the Vatican has reduced its armed forces, you could (a) convert to Catholicism (b) migrate to one of the Catholic cantons of Switzerland (c) become a citizen thereof (d) join the Vatican Swiss Guards. But they may require you to be a native-born citizen...

So, (a) convert to Catholicism (b)work your way up to Cardinal (c) get assigned to the Vatican--I see you as a member of the Congregation for the Propagation of the Faith (the origin of the word 'propaganda'). Technically, I don't think you need to be a priest to be a Cardinal, although I think all Cardinals today are. If you don't have to be a priest, then you don't have to be celibate!

Go for it!

Why is it a shame that there are no terrorist in the Vatican? I never expected you to be anti-Catholic? Wow,I'm heartbroken as a Catholic to hear that.:(

I am not anti Catholic at all. I was just making a point that even if i wanted to escape the "Warr on terror" and terrorists attacks, there is no place to run to. No place where the terrorists might not attack. So there is no safe haven so to speak. Except for the Vatican, which is technically a country, but i can not really immigrate to. I would have to like take a vow of celibacy and stuff like that in order to do that. That was the whole point.
I would never wish for terrorists to attack the Vatican, the same way I would never wish for them to attack Mecca. Sorry if you misunderstood me.
