    The Lateran Treaty of 1929

    On 11th of February, in 1929, the Fascist Government of Benito Mussolini signed the Lateran Treaty with the Vatican, making the Pope Head of State for the first time.

    Since then no Pope has relinquished his Fascist title, Head of State, but rather have used it to extend their temporal power and to obstruct justice.

    Tell us one about the illuminati Victor, maybe it'll be more believeable.

    Let's also just say that Thatcher wasn't especially popular within continental Europe, and it's an euphemism. Just like the disastrous mandate of Bush jr in the US, she did a lot of harm to foreign British diplomatic relationships.

    Absolutely true.

    I'm just wondering why our dear Lark denies simple historical facts, even if I agree with him and Adams on what Thatcher dared to do in Ireland.

    Huh? Could you be more specific, please?

    Remember I am not a native English speaker.

    Edit: no wait, I've understood. But that is not trolling, my friend. The Lateran Treaty is an historical event, and you know I often agree with Victor. Not always, but most of the time.
    Anyway, do not take it personally. To speak like Kant, what really matters are our ideas, not our persons or beliefs.

    The nicest thing about Lark is that he is well read, but Lark does seem to take a slanted view towards Irish Catholicism that doesn't let facts get in the way.

    Actually Lark has something to be proud of in Ireland, and that is the first Judicial Enquiry in the world into child abuse. Yes, Justice Seán Ryan brought down his Report, nine years in the making, in 2009.

    It is an historic report of which Lark can be proud.

    Do you think, dear Blackmail, you might upgrade your agreement from most of the time to always. Or do you think I might be asking too much?
