The Heartland Institute (@HeartlandInst) is preparing to picket Pope Francis. Yes, you read that right. They are actually going to Rome in order to picket the Pope.

These are the same people who put up a billboard comparing climate change scientists to the Unabomber, so I'm sure that this picket will be super tasteful.

Actual Heartland Billboard

Demonstrations aren't allowed on the piazza. They'll be redirected to some corner by security.

By the way, demonstrators can be hired in Italy along with media to crop them to make five people look like a hundred. It depends on how much the Kochs want to spend- about a hundred bucks a head plus transportation and a bag lunch.

Drop them a line. Tell Fox.

Can't wait for these rockheads to start bitching about their First Amendment rights being violated.

Pope says many powerful people don't want peace
Pope Francis said Monday that "many powerful people don't want peace because they live off war". The Argentine pontiff made the hard-hitting comment in response to a question from one of the 7,000 children taking part in an audience held with the Peace Factory organisation.
