Pope heading to Philippines, where adoring crowds await

Well not all people.

Street children as young as five are being caged in brutal detention centers alongside adult criminals in a cynical drive to smarten up the Philippines capital ahead of a visit by Pope Francis this week

If the Pope really cares, he should sit all the privileged and elite class in the Philippines in front of him in public and nationally televised real time TV and criticize them for enabling the vampant corruption, sexual exploitation of minors and the underprivileged and demand the leaders of this nation to do a better job to care for its own people.

Caging and chaining homeless orphans and children in cages and barred detention buildings just to put up a superficial facade to welcome the Pope is anything but. I say the Pope should visit these detention sites and admonish the Filipino gov't for acting so disgustingly fubar.

The current pope is one of the better ones.

You might be surprised at the devotion some people have there. I might follow a different road but I tip my hat at them.

Why do you tip your hat to a demonstrably flawed institution?
