Pope Knocked Down (Video)

Pope Benedict XVI was walking toward the altar for Christmas Mass in the holy city when a woman jumped out of the pew and knocked him down to the ground. That this could happen before the most holy of all Christian services in the world is shocking. See the video below.

The incident occurred on Christmas eve, Thursday December 24th 2009. Pope Benedict was walking down a path I know well having visited the Vatican as a tourist several times. Such is the world we live in today.

A woman in red (no less) high stepped the barrier and rushed the Pope. She grabbed his Papal vestment gown and dragged him to the ground on top of her. His papal miter and staff crashed to the ground.

The Pope’s bodyguards who are unaccustomed to such challenges managed to wrestle the assailant to the ground. She was arrested and is now held without bail in Vatican City itself.

In Italian the crowd rallied by chanting “viva il papa” as the Pope rose from the ground. Papa means Father in the native tongue. In most of the world the Pope is a the religious father figure to Christian people.

Pope Benedict XVI has publicly chastised Barack Obama for his stance on publicly-funded abortions which are part of the Obamcare heath care plan which just passed the U.S. Senate on Christmas eve. The Pope was about to deliver a sermon on the sanctity of human life in the most hallowed ground in Christianity, St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

The Christian allegory in this incident will be unmistakable to some. In the coming days the parallel between this wannabe woman assassin and Barack Obama will be discussed in blogs and news sites everywhere.

From a Christian perspective it is as if Barack Obama himself jumped a barrier to kill the Pope because of his offensive views on the sanctity of life. The everyday man, represented by bodyguards, rallied to save him. Pope knocked down by President Obama himself is a Christian angle to this story.

Meanwhile see the video below of the Pope knocked down. Tell us what you think in the comments about the breaking Pope news on Christmas 2009.
