Catholics Take Out Bus Ads Aimed At Pope

The Pope's visit to England next month is sure to provoke protests, campaigns and demonstrations of every flavour. Here's a curious one. The Catholic Women's Ordination group will take out advertising space on London's buses, asking the Pope to admit women priests into the church. The adverts, costing around £15,000, will run during the pontiff's visit on 16-19 September and will decorate buses passing Westminster Hall, where His Holiness will deliver a speech on the 17th. It seems the preaching on the bus goes round and round, following previous mobile appeals by atheists and three Christian groups.
