    My infant cousin was "accidently" slapped on the face by the pope. His mother carried him up and toward the papal ring but the pope pulled his hand back and chipped my cousins tooth. They considered suing the Vatican but then he blessed the tooth for him.

    1) The pope didn't want to be a part of Italy in the 19th century, you say. True, but neither did San Marino.
    2) Monaco has no airport, but is does have a heliport.

    Libya began work on a railway running the length of the country's coast plus a line due south. Work stopped with the Arab Spring uprising in 2011. They did get 9 miles of track and 15 locomotives plus a passenger train set. The passenger train was a gift from Italy's prime minister to mark Gadhafi's 40 years as Libyan leader.

    The smallest country has a railroad and every other conceivable convenience because people hand them money which is then stockpiled and NOT used to help the needy, because ....... ? I guess because Jesus isn't being adequately representative by the Church. Jesus roamed the countryside with only the possessions he can carry helping and preaching to the people he met. No guards, no riches, no grand cathedrals, no Pope-mobile, no hypocrisy.
