CHARGES DROPPED AGAINST FAKE POPE
Tuesday April 28th, 2009
A man arrested for driving a fake Pope Mobile around the Streets of Sydney to protest against the Pontiff’s visit has had all charges dropped. Ian Bryce was charged with distracting motorists during the build up to World youth Day last July, however according to his claims a barrister and a solicitor from the NSW Council for Civil Liberties managed to persuade the authorities to drop the case.
In a interview with Bryce he said: 'The purpose of the Popemobile was to draw the media attention and the public's attention to the false claims and the very bad actions of the Pope and the Church in coming here for World Youth Day, which I believe is in effect a latter day crusade… It was against the Pope's claims to have supernatural authority, and all the harm he's doing in the world in banning condoms and trying to avoid family planning.' He also added, 'And now he's said that gays are an equal threat to mankind as climate change, and I can't for the life of me see what harm they're doing anyone.'
