I read this story with some alarm:
USA Today: Pope loses approval; 50% say he should step down
I'm no fan of institutionalised religion but the fact that Gallup are polling the general public about the future of a man who is knock, knock, knocking on heaven's door seems slightly distasteful.
Maybe I'm just old fashioned. Maybe the Vatican should do away with all that white smoke nonsense and organise a reality TV show to choose the next Pontiff.
They can call it Pope Idol.
