Diplomat Anjoum Noorani Debases, Degrades the Pope
Talk about double standards. And not just any double standard! This guy better change his name, move country, have facial recronstruction, fake his own death, because when the Catholics get mad they just may put a “fatwhahahaha” on him….any minute now….come on Catholics! Don’t let me down!
Mutual respect? One way, baby.
No room for nobody but Islam. And the more righteous you are, the more they treat you like scum. A Muslim diplomat has insulted and degraded the Pope — are Muslim embassies set afire? Is there a worldwide movement — throwing shoes at Muslims, burning korans and Islamic flags? Are Christians beheading Muslims? No way.
The diplomat who has been disciplined over a Foreign Office memo mocking the Pope was accused last night of being “clueless” about the Catholic faith.
Anjoum Noorani, 31, was the leader of the Papal Visit Team which drew up a document suggesting the Pope should launch his own range of “Benedict” condoms, open an abortion clinic and stay in a council flat in Bradford.
Mr Noorani, whose identity has until now remained secret, was moved to “other duties” after he gave authorisation for the memo to be sent to Downing Street and three Whitehall departments.
The memo, which was leaked to The Sunday Telegraph, threatens to overshadow the Pope’s entire four-day visit in September after it prompted fury in the Vatican and among Catholics in Britain.
Senior members of the church have described Mr Noorani and his team as having “not the slightest understanding of Catholicism”. None of the four-strong group is thought to be a practising Catholic.
The memo, which also called for the Pope to bless a homosexual marriage, was emailed around Whitehall by Steven Mulvain, a 23-year-old Oxford graduate who describes his sexual orientation on a social networking website as “gay”.
He didn’t recommend the Islamic way to handle Gay? Hang ’em high.
Mr Mulvain has not been disciplined for his role in the fiasco.
Mr Noorani, who, like Mr Mulvain, is a graduate of Balliol College, Oxford, chaired the “brainstorm” session which led to the “Ideal Visit” memo, which also proposed that the Pope should sing a duet with the Queen and sponsor a network of Aids clinics.
