The Kissing Pope

Benetton have put up a series of ads of prominent people kissing. There is Sarkozy and Merkel:

And there is Obama and the Chinese leader:

And then there is/was the Pope and a leading Imam. Benetton took it down after the Vatican said it was taking legal action. No sense of humour, these Catholics. While it's still available, here is the offending image:

The Pope has natal Venus in Taurus square to Neptune. He is sensuous and indiscriminate with it. But his Venus is opposite Saturn, so he is afraid of his sensuality and lets Benetton (and paedophile priests) do it for him. Unfortunately, his Saturn is in 9th House Sag, so he gets legal about it. With Nodal Mars in Gemini opposite the MC, he likes to pick a fight in public. Because his Mars is square Mercury-Jupiter in Pisces, he is not good at knowing which fight to pick, and with Mars square Uranus, he can be impulsive.

For a history of the pope and his potshots, see my blog from nearly 3 years ago, which begins:

Pope Benedict has done it yet again. First in 2006 it was the Muslims: “Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”

Then just before Christmas he announced that saving humanity from homosexual or transsexual behaviour was as important as protecting the environment.

And then last week he reversed the excommunication of a bishop who is a holocaust denier.

In any normal job, he'd have been sacked years ago, and many of his priests would be doing lengthy jail terms for the sexual abuse of children. The Pope and many of his colleagues would also be in jail for concealing it. But this is religion, where the rules are different.
