    considering the IRA , PROTESTANTS in rage, weren't able to attack the Vatican, I sincerely doubt the Islamist extremists will have much luck either.

    I notice some numbnut below, "shakky_whackky", he who keeps his Q&A hidden from view, coward that he is, is BIG on bashing others ....ugh..... well, no wonder he's hiding from the world

    A holy war? No way, this isn't the middle ages any more. Don't you remember how pissed the muslim world got at the pope the other year for saying that Islam was a violent religion? Besides, why would Islamist militants attack the Vatican anyway? There would be no point other than symbolism, especially seeing how the major enemies of extremist factions aren't even catholic (US, Britain, etc).

    Being that the Pope is the only one that could declare a Holy War, too many different scenarios come into play.

    It would really depend on what God was doing that day. Now, if he was busy in an American prison tending to all the newly converted born again Christian law breakers, the Vatican would be in trouble.

    Haven't you noticed how much time Jesus spends in prisons today? He seems to be too busy to keep his eye on trouble spots like Darfur etc.

    Now, if he happened to be at the Vatican on the day, all bombs would obviously be deflected.

    Man, only an American would ask this question.

    Reality check-

    The Saudis, Chinese and Japanese own you. Your women can't stop spending their money on shoes and make-up. Most of them look like porn stars.

    Worry about your domestic problem.

    Thanks for proving the point of the infamous ignorant American.
