Sign petition to ban anti-Pope group from World Youth Day!!
 
Sign the petition to ban the group "Rescate" from World Youth Day!

As has been discussed at the following threads,

the Argentinian rock group "Rescate" who is slated to perform at World Youth Day has made several comments which are offensive to the Papacy. Many truly believe that their presence at WYD would send the wrong message to the kids of the world. The comments include:
Quote:

"...the Popeís strength is more political than spiritual. This Pope, who is so orthodox, so rigid and not very ecumenical in eyes of some, could turn out to be a surprise because of how he might be forced to change due to political situations from which he cannot escape. Replacing John Paul II obviously has more of a political than a spiritual significance."

These comments are in direct contrast to the teachings of the Catholic church. If you are offended that a group with these views would perform at an event hosted by the Pontiff himself, please sign the petition to ban Rescate from WYD.

The petiiton is here: http://www.petitiononline.com/wyd2005/petition.html. Please sign the petition, and alert everyone you can about this problem.

what's with these cheese-ball christian rockers?! how lame. why do they force this touchy-feelie ***** music on all the youth? why not bring in the monks from solemes or choirs that sing sacred polyphony? classical would be good too.

i wish this post concilliar garbage will be put behind us and we can start living our lives like catholics by not trying to fit in or be hip.

if we have to listen to rock music, at least make it good and bring in all the hair bands from the 80s like ratt, trixter, firehouse, whitesnake, and cinderella. now that would be totally bitchin'.

When you guys look at the list of signatures, do your own names appear? I signed, but my names does not appear. I am wondering if it does not show the name for the computer doing the request. I'm confused.

edit: Wow, that is so totally weird. I just signed it again and my name appeared. I'm #13. Oh well. :whacky:
