Make The Pope Pay
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to ask the Catholic Church to pay for the proposed visit of the Pope to the UK and relieve the taxpayer of the estimated £20 million cost. We accept the right of the Pope to visit his followers in Britain, but public money would be better spent on hard-pressed schools, hospitals and social services which are facing cuts.
I don’t mind religious figures visiting the UK – as long as their agenda isn’t to preach their homophobic, xenophobic, anti-abortion and sexist views. Especially when it costs so much money.
I’d rather the campaign was “stop the Pope coming altogether”. But please add your name to the petition.
