Pope Longs for "Super Bad" America

When he's not gently nudging the world toward simpler, more medieval days, the Pope worries that America may be losing its soul.

Has His Eminence not seen the commercials for the forthcoming Soul Plane?

Has His Holiness turned a deaf ear toward American airwaves, where a handful of soulful artists have finally displaced boy bands and Brittney knock-offs from the top of the charts?

Not that I completely disagree with what the pontiff is saying here, but when I hear the Pope railing against a country gone soulless, or when I hear him decrying birth control in developing nations, I just think, "Hey, JP II -- shouldn't you be canonizing something right now?"
