So no surprise Ratzinger was made Pope!
I wonder how must CIA money the Rat received for Poppy campaign?  




WikiLeaks cables:
Pope wanted Muslim Turkey kept out of EUVatican diplomats also lobbied against Venezuela's Hugo Chávez and wanted 'Christian roots' enshrined in EU constitution


The pope is responsible for the Vatican's growing hostility towards Turkey joining the EU, previously secret cables sent from the US embassy to the Holy See in Rome claim.

In 2004 Cardinal Ratzinger, the future pope, spoke out against letting a Muslim state join, although at the time the Vatican was formally neutral on the question.

The Vatican's acting foreign minister, Monsignor Pietro Parolin, responded by telling US diplomats that Ratzinger's comments were his own rather than the official Vatican position.

The cable released by WikiLeaks shows that Ratzinger was the leading voice behind the Holy See's unsuccessful drive to secure a reference to Europe's "Christian roots" in the EU constitution. The US diplomat noted that Ratzinger "clearly understands that allowing a Muslim country into the EU would further weaken his case for Europe's Christian foundations".

But by 2006 Parolin was working for Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, and his tone had distinctly chilled. "Neither the pope nor the Vatican have endorsed Turkey's EU membership per se," he told the American charge d'affaires, "rather, the Holy See has been consistently open to accession, emphasising only that Turkey needs to fulfil the EU's Copenhagen criteria to take its place in Europe."

No wonder Rudi and others hate Arabs so much.

The clowns they worship share the same mentality.

Pope wanted Muslim Turkey kept out of EU

It seems that the Pope doesn´t like to face competition in religion issues. He wants exclusivity to exploit all the sheep of souls of the EU. You know...the 2008 crisis may left the Church a little bit poorer

For sure the Pope wants exclusivity to explore the sheep of souls from the EU. Competition harms hegemony...

Why?
Just because they are Moooslems?




Why not then declare the EU is a Christiandom for all to witness?


Cultural differences....and yes,such a large moozlim population would be too much. It won't work. And if you read the wiki cables from Turkey you'll understand why.

Germany already has 2 million of them Turks...we know it doesn't work.
