German law should apply to everyone on German soil, including the Pope, which is why a German citizen from Dortmund filed a complaint against Pope Benedict XVI when he saw that he wasn’t wearing his seat belt during a Popemobile parade.
The plaintiff, whose name was not disclosed, named Baden-Württemberg Minister-President Winfried Kretxchmann and Archbishop Rober Zolltisch as witnesses in the case and asked that they provide testimonies.
“Seatbelts save lives and the Pope should obey the traffic rules,” the plaintiff said, adding that a driver was killed in a traffic accident shortly after the Pope’s visit for failing to wear a seatbelt.
It would appear the plaintiff didn’t know that God offers more protection than a seat belt. /sarcasmRead More
