One of the books I am reading at the moment is Garry O'Connor's biography of Pope John Paul II.
The reason I mention this is that last night I was reading about his visit to Great Britain in 1982 and I came across this paragraph which made me smile:
"In Liverpool the Pope visited both the Anglican and Catholic cathedrals. Along the route of his British Leyland lorry decked out as a popemobile, anti-papal Paisleyites waved placards on which was painted: ANYONE BLESSED BY THE POPE IS CONDEMNED TO HELL. The Pope turned towards one, and with a mischevious twinkle in his eye gave the Paisleyites a blessing."
You've got to hand it to those Paisleyites for their imagination! ;)
