    Please take Pope to North and East to bless that bloody land where government carried out their atrocities over the last 3 decades.

    A visit by the Pope would mean that he endorses the atrocities being committed in this Country.

    Cobra Friday, 02 August 2013 01:57 PM

    He probably thinks the Pope's visit will absolve him from all his sins!

    Yatathwasiya Friday, 02 August 2013 01:50 PM

    Yes, it is a good project to forget the problems of the country for couple of months and score marks too.

    The Pope will loose his reputation if he visits SL.

    crick Friday, 02 August 2013 01:01 PM

    sahdi Friday, 02 August 2013 12:27 PM

    kaputakukula Friday, 02 August 2013 12:11 PM

    As a Catholic, I strongly object our Holy Father visiting this 'damned' country. Period.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 02 August 2013 12:00 PM

    He is very good in using any religion to cover up his unsavoury deeds.

    Mutu Friday, 02 August 2013 11:51 AM

    If Popes comes the most pleased person will be Shrinthi.

    This is good but maybe your focus should be on Weliveriya... because the Pope aint coming to a place where the army beats up people asking for safe water to drink.

    MagodisThuma Friday, 02 August 2013 10:20 AM

    Religion is best used in Sri Lanka to mask the Corruptions !
