Why does one of the more powerful religious figures on the planet require a popemobile? That was a rhetorical question obviously. And it certainly has nothing to do with the fact that all popes are required to be old and decrepit before assuming that role and need help getting from their walker to inside the popemobile. The very being that created the vastness of the universe seems indifferent, uninterested, or probably, unable to stop a papal speeding bullet. Hell, even Superman can do that.

    THe pope mobile needs to be powerful as it has a lot of baggage to pull behind it when he is on tour.

    I bet an IED would pop the pope.

    The eyes of the pope in that cartoon are a little unnerving despite the fact he's "shooting the peace sign."
