Protestant Truth Society to Protest Pope Visit?
|The Protestant Truth Society Bookshop|
'Papal Visit Protest, led by the Protestant Truth Society in co-operation with other Protestant organisations on Friday 17th September 2010. The protest is to be held in front of The Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London SW1P 3EE Protesters are invited to arrive from 3:30 for 4:00pm Pope Benedict XVI is expected around 5:00pm. The protest will be finished by 7:30pm. Appropriate scriptural placards will be provided. Please don’t come with any third party placards. Specially produced tracts will also be supplied.'
In other words, don't come with tracts quoting the Bible, such as 'Thou art Peter, the Rock and upon this Rock I Shall Build My Church' or 'Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.'. One commenter suggested some protestful protestant slogans for banners, some of which I reproduce here:
'PURGATORY PROBABLY DOESN'T EXIST
TRANSUBSTANTIATION IS AN ERRONEOUS DOCTRINE AT LEAST SOME OF US THINK SO WELL ACTUALLY IT'S A BIT COMPLICATED TO EXPLAIN RIGHT NOW
BEN YOU'RE NOT INFALLIBLE EVEN IF YOU EVER CLAIM TO BE WHICH ADMITTEDLY NO POPE HAS FOR OVER 100 YEARS JUST WATCH IT THAT'S ALL
ON THE ONE HAND... ON THE OTHER HAND... IN A VERY REAL SENSE... ER... WHAT DO WE BELIEVE ANYWAY?
WHAT DO WE WANT? ROWAN! WHEN DO WE WANT HIM? ER, UM, ... THERE'S REALLY NO HURRY
WE LOVE HENRY VIII NOW THERE'S A THEOLOGIAN WE CAN RESPECT'
I see that Larry "We decided to pull Building 7" Silverstein's company, Silverstein Properties, are set to be heavily involved in the new construction, set to take the place of the towers at Ground Zero. How fortunate it was that he took out insurance on terror attacks just weeks before 9/11 and proceeded to win double the payout in court because there were two separate attacks, so, I guess he can afford to be involved in the new project. Now that's what I call a piece of shrewd and prudent business in the face of unmitigated tragedy!
Anyway, if you can think of any more amusing Protestant Truth Society protest slogans, pop them in the comments box...
May the souls of all the departed victims of 9/11 attack rest in peace.
