The first thought that came to me when I read that pope Francis had tried to prevent a Rolling Stones concert on Good Friday was: "here we go, the ugly papal head is reared from mediaeval times to thwart the will of princes." I mean, it's quite rich coming from someone fanatically in favour of a fixed date for Easter to worry about Christian sentitivities on Good Friday. But there's more. You can't expect people to respect your religion when you go about presenting a version of Christianity that is completely unattractive, and divorced from your own patrimony. In a nutshell!
