i’ll be in berlin next week, but i doubt i’ll draw as much of a controversy discussion as the pope did with his visit this week – i don’t really care for all the fuss that is made, but i think this photo says it all

Pope Benedict XVI waves next to German President Christian Wulff at the German Lower house of Parliament in the Reichstag on September 22, 2011 in Berlin, at the start of his first state visit to his native Germany. The 84-year old pope, German born Joseph Ratzinger, has a packed program, with 18 sermons and speeches planned for his four-day trip to Berlin, Erfurt in the ex-German Democratic Republic and Freiburg.
