    to raise awareness for the pope's £20million trip to the UK, coming out of taxpayers' money, which would be better spent on hard-pressed schools, hospitals and social services which are facing cuts.

    The legislation introduced by the government contravenes our religious doctrines; you are in no place to make assumptions and condemn us to having to introduce unnecessary and unwanted provisions in our Church. It's a disgrace that the atheists are so scant in their regard for those who may have religious beliefs. You promote freedom of expression yet limit those who wish to practice their respective faith in the privacy of their own homes only. It's a terrible and avoidable state of affairs.

    £20m is peanuts to the government anyway.
    Hi. I'm an atheist. I don't support this because I believe in freedom of conscience regardless of my personal views. Thanks for making a massive assumption about my politics simply because I haven't seen enough evidence of gods, though. Are "the Catholics" paedophiles?

    No.

    Just like all Atheists aren't militant.

    Then perhaps you shouldn't make posts generalising them as being so.

    I'm all for this, I don't believe that religion should be something that effects the state or the law. It's all very well saying that it's cutting down on the religion to freedom of religion, but the freedom you talk of is an attempt to infringe on other peoples freedom.

    So you think that because you believe in an uberfairy, your community has a right to £20 million of taxpayer money, to be used to import discrimination and ignorance? I struggle to sympathise with your argument.

    In fairness, it's not as if Catholics went to the Treasury and demanded the money. Those are pretty much standard costs whenever a foreign dignitary of prominence visits.

    If someone posts a link where the figure isn't estimated by a f***ing facebook group I'll take it seriously.
