I am at a loss to analyse this. One of the feet the Pope kissed belonged to a Muslim woman? Okay, I understand that there were a dozen young people whose feet he kissed .... but this act of his will give never- ending propaganda for the Muslims at large and for all the Catholic haters. Ugh !! My first reaction on seeing this pic on Good Friday morning is @#$%!&^%(*&^%%$#@!O(*** and much more #$%^@!*&^^$)*&^%. If you were within yards of me, you would have run miles away from me.
Is the dhimmi really a dhimmi or is he hoping for muslim conversions to Chritianity? Does the fuck really think he will do away with hatred because he loves kissing feet of all shapes, color and creeds? %$#@*&&^^%%$#(*&^ !!!!

...Pope Francis washed the feet of a dozen inmates at a juvenile detention centre in a Holy Thursday ritual that he celebrated for years as archbishop and is continuing now that he is pope. Two of the 12 were young women, a remarkable choice given that the rite re-enacts Jesus’ washing of the feet of his male disciples.
The Mass was held in the Casal del Marmo facility in Rome, where 46 young men and women currently are detained. Many of them are Gypsies or North African migrants, and the Vatican said the 12 selected for the rite weren’t necessarily Catholic.
Because the inmates were mostly minors — the facility houses inmates aged 14-21 — the Vatican and Italian Justice Ministry limited media access inside. But Vatican Radio carried the Mass live, and Francis told the detainees that Jesus washed the feet of his disciples on the eve of his crucifixion in a gesture of love and service.
“This is a symbol, it is a sign --washing your feet means I am at your service,” Francis told the youngsters. “Help one another. This is what Jesus teaches us. This is what I do. And I do it with my heart. I do this with my heart because it is my duty, as a priest and bishop I must be at your service.”
Later, the Vatican released a limited video of the ritual, showing Francis washing black feet, white feet, male feet, female feet and even a foot with tattoos.......
The vid above is from the TelegraphUK and the writer there has gone out of her way to title the article Pope washes feet of young Muslim woman prisoner in unprecedented twist on Maundy Thursday although His Holiness kissed the feet of 11 other people. There won't be an end to the telling and showing of this act.
